I added a debug line to Archiver.py:

syslog('error', 'Archive file access failure:\n\t%s %s', old, new)

and it revealed the issue was a missing symlink in /var/lib/mailman/archives

Once I corrected the ownership - it succeeded:

ls -lad /var/lib/mailman/archives/public
drwxrwsr-x 2 35 utempter 32768 May 24 19:35 /var/lib/mailman/archives/public

chown mailman:mailman /var/lib/mailman/archives/public
ls -lad /var/lib/mailman/archives/public
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 32768 May 24 19:35 /var/lib/mailman/archives/public
