I think the issue is where the files are located. In Ubuntu, the files
(aliases, aliases.db, virtual-mailman and virtual-mailman.db) will (I
think) be in /var/lib/mailman/data/.

See if in fact, those files exist and are updated when you create a list
or run Mailman's bin/genaliases.

Those files are the ones you want to point to in your Postfix config.
