The /usr/local/mailman/lists/myproblemlist/config.pck file containing
the list configuration, membership, etc. is corrupt. When this happens,
Mailman tries in order


the config.pck.last file is the immediately prior version and it too is
apparently corrupt. The config.db and config.db.last files are artifacts
from Mailman 2.0 and should not exist so the

[Errno 2] No such file or directory:

is expected and normal in this situation.

Hopefully, you have a recent backup from before the outage with a good
/usr/local/mailman/lists/myproblemlist/config.pck file that you can restore.
