I am not sure what you are trying to do here, if you turn off the display of lists on the /listinfo page, people can still send emails to the list if they know about them from other means (I.e, Google searches, your Wordpress site etc).

For what it's worth I run a load of lists on 2.1.20 which is the latest stable release and most if not all the users are blind and using it fine with assistive technology.  In terms of your version, you are using a pre-release/beta version, so depending on how you installed that would give you more ideas about whether updating the VM OS would break things.  What OS is the VM running now, is is being patched etc?

Do you mean your list admin passwords or something else?
