The links aren't 'wrong'. It's just that the archives aren't there yet.
Did you actually move any archives? Did you want to?
If the directories (folders)
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/xxx.mbox/ contain a file xxx-mbox,
and that contains the old messages, you can rebuild the archives with
bin/arch --wipe composers-list
bin/arch --wipe members-list
But from your description, it seems you didn't actually move any
archives, so the xxx.mbox files probably aren't there.
What to do now depends on whether or not you want the old archives.
