At some point you moved or copied the archives and instead of copying
the symlinks in archives/public as symlinks, you copied the target data
which is never updated.

The ONLY thing that ever should be in archives/public/ is symlinks to
the corresponding items in archives/private/.

The solution is simple:

rm -r archives/private/*

Mailman will automatically recreate the necessary archives/public/
symlinks for each publicly archived list the next time it does anything
to the list.
