What is in Mailman's error log. Please post the entire traceback from
the above error.

It has been reported on this list that the location of a cPanel Mailman
installation is /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/. Within tat
directory should be a logs/ dirrectory containing the 'error' log
among others.

Also, there is a lists/<listname>/ directory that contains the list
data. The current configuration is config.pck and the immediately
previous is config.pck.last. It may be sufficient to just copy
config.pck.last to config.pck but before you start doing anything with
those, let's see the traceback from the error.

Also note that in cPanel, the <listname> above is a 'qualified' list
name as in list_example.com.
