Essentially, every time a list is accessed, the archiver is called to
either create or remove the symlink from archives/public/listname to
archives/private/listname depending on the list's archive_private

>admin(13110):   REQUEST_URI: /cgi-bin/mailman/admin/venus

In this case, the list 'venus' has an archive_private setting of Public
so Mailman is trying to do the equivalent of

ln -s archives/private/venus archives/public/venus

and the archives/public directory (or some superordinate) doesn't exist.

Did you move your lists and not their archives?
