It looks like you have a problem in your Postfix configuration. This is
not a genaliases problem. You'll get the same error if you just run
the command

/usr/sbin/postalias /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases

directly. It looks like you have

setgid_group =

somewhere in your Postfix configuration (main.cf) and Postfix is
telling you the value must be at least 1 character.
