My best guess is there is some directory in the full path
/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/mylist/ that does not have search
permission for Mailman's group or the mylist/ ditectory does not have
write permission for Mailman's group or the index.html file exists and
doesn't have write permission for Mailman's group or this is a SELinux
or other security manager issue.

Did you migrate the archives by copying the archives/private/mylist
tree? If so, you may be able to fix this by following the recommended
procedure which is to only copy the
archives/private/mylist.mbox/mylist.mbox files and build the pipermail
archive with 'bin/arch --wipe mylist'
