The cron job senddigests does not have permission to access the
'mailman' (site list) configuration.

If this in a new installation, run 'bin/check_perms -f' as root (in the
/home/mailman/ directory) to fix permissions and/or make sure the
crontab is being run as the mailman user.

If this is an existing, working installation, check the
permissions/owner/group on /home/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck
