One thing to check is that they didn't install an older version of 
Python and the various Python libraries, as part of the older 
installation of Mailman.  You need more recent versions of Python and 
the libraries for later versions of Mailman.

None of these should be directories.  They should be symlinks over to 
corresponding directories in the .../mailman/archives/private/... 
directory hierarchy.
