Some additional information:

This is mailman 2.1.8-2ubuntu2.

The reference to the 'bug fix' is at
in which is found

  * Make sure we don't ship /var/lib/mailman/pythonlib, should make that
    go away on installations which already have it (closes: #242740).

(I couldn't find a description of #242740).

The above change seems to have been made some time ago, so perhaps the
issue is caused by some more recent change to the Ubuntu Python email
