My best guess is that at the time this specific list was created,
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN in mm_cfg.py was missing a trailing slash. E.g.,

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/cgi-bin/mailman'

This caused the list to be created with web_page_url missing the slash
which in turn caused the problem with the archive page.

If the links in this list's admin interface are correct, the
web_page_url is now correct, (corrected by running fix_url or ?), but
this page in the archive will continue to have the error until it is
replaced when a message is archived. If you don't want to wait for
that, the easiest fix it to manually edit the
archives/private/<listname>/index.html file.
