This looks like the stuff from the Mailman installation manual which is
a bit lacking. The best guide is at

$(lc:$local_part) is syntactically incorrect and should be
${lc::$local_part}. This is the cause of your immediate issue.

The above reference recommends defining MAILMAN_HOME (or MM_HOME) as


and effectively

require_files = MAILMAN_HOME/lists/${lc::$local_part}/config.pck

Actually, they recommend in definitions


and in the router

   require_files = MM_LISTCHK

The above is actually incomplete, but not your immediate problem. See
the above reference.

Here, ${domain} should be ${lc::$domain} to be sure, or following the
above reference,

    command = MM_WRAP \
