I brought up a fresh install of Mailman3 via the current Debian package alongside my current 2.1 setup (installed and updated from source since 2002) on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Importing lists from 2.1 has been a real problem.
I am trying to import a list with no archives to keep it simple while I prove out the process. If I run the mailman import21 comment as my user, I get the following errors:

This is the issue. I don't know how the Debian packages do this, but I recommend having a 'mailman' user that owns everything and running commands as that user.
Error in atexit._run_exitfuncs: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.6/logging/__init__.py", line 1945, in shutdown h.flush() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/mailman/core/logging.py", line 56, in flush if self._stream: AttributeError: 'ReopenableFileHandler' object has no attribute '_stream'
This is due to the prior permissions error.
If I run it as root, it runs for a long time but spews a HUGE stream of these errors to /var/log/mailman3/mailman.log:
If there are a lot of members to add, that can take a long time. The current version of import21 has a progress thermometer for this.

First, I don't know what these messages are. Normally import21 doesn't send any mail. I'm guessing it's trying to send 'you are subscribed' notices to the users, but it shouldn't be doing this.
All these files should wind up in Mailman's var/queue/bad/ directory with a .psv extension. You should be able to examine them with the 'mailman qfile' command.
Whatever they are, the error comes from virgin runner so import21 should have actually succeeded. Did it import the list?
It also dumps some mail footer templates into the template directory that are owned by root, which seems … incorrect?
It makes a weak effort at converting the list's msg_footer and digest_footer into MM 3 templates in templates/list/<list-id>/<list-lang>/. These are owned by root in your case because you ran import21 as root.
Any thoughts on what’s going wrong here?
It looks like this may be an issue with the Debian package, at least the sending of messages part.
As for the rest, the Debian package should install stuff as a Mailman user, perhaps 'mailman' or 'list', and you should be running all commands as that user.
