There is no subscribeack.txt template in any of the places that
Utils.maketext() looks for it.

Either someone tried to edit it and removed the base template from the
templates/<language>/ directory and didn't put the edited template in
the right place (the base template should not be removed or changed),
or there's a permissions problem, or your Mailman is not completely
