Did you by any chance use the .grdb file as a portable format? It is not, see http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Recover_corrupted_grdb

If that is not the reason, you have a database problem. Best to start from a new empty database and import the last .gramps file backup.
then in the tools menu run rebuild reference tables, rebuild sec indexes and then the check and repair tool.

Does that work?
