This is because the moved list's liusts/LISTNAME/config.pck file is

The first step is to remove the config.pck. If there is a
config.pck.last, it may be OK. If there is no config.pck.last, or it's
not OK remove all lists/LISTNAME/config.pck* files for this list. Then
the admin and listinfo overviews will work.

This may be the cause of the current problem, or it may be because
there was some problem with the original config.pck that you moved.

This is all because of the one corrupt config.pck.

You don't need to do that. That is only to identify which list's
config.pck is corrupt, but we know that because you can't get to the
moved list's admin or listinfo pages so it is the config.pck for the
moved list which has the problem.
