I'm unclear on how this is configured in your installation. In a
'normal' Debian/Ubuntu package, everything is in /var/lib/mailman/. In
particular, the various templates such as subscribeack.txt are in
/var/lib/mailman/templates/LC/, possibly overridden by list specific,
domain specific, or site specific templates. See
<https://wiki.list.org/x/4030605> for info on the location of these.

You need to verify that the templates in /var/lib/mailman/templates/ca/
exist and are appropriate and if there are any overrides in
/var/lib/mailman/templates/DOMAIN/ca/ or
/var/lib/mailman/templates/site/ca/ that they are appropriate.
