Initially this was experienced as trouble some people had unsubscribing from groups. But over the last few months it has been seen affecting virtually all aspects of group membership, including changes to the membership email address. Your situation boils down to: some of the servers didn't get the message (your change of address).

From any Groups page, click "Help" (upper left or bottom center) then either "I need an Answer" or "Get Help". In the latter case, these selections seem to work:
