It appears that the config.pck file for at least one list is corrupt.

Try running

 bin/dumpdb lists/<listname>/config.pck

for all your lists. If you find one that looks like things are missing,

 bin/dumpdb -p lists/<listname>/config.pck.last

for that list. If the config.pck.last looks OK (it probably won't), you
can do

 cp lists/<listname>/config.pck.last lists/<listname>/config.pck

for that list. Otherwise, I hope you have a recent backup.
