Those links are in the HTML files in the archive. Some of those files
like the table of contents and the current periodic (monthly or ..)
indices are rewritten as new posts arrive, and should get rewritten
with the correct URL. The listinfo links in older indices and messages
will not get rewritten.

You have a few choices.

1) Assuming the archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox files are
present and complete, rebuild the archives with

  bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME

2) Edit the HTML files by hand or with a script

3) Live with it.
