The problem is that you use the binary format to upgrade, and this is very
problematic for different reasons.
How to continue is in
So, you have a grdb file, that means the previous version of gramps was
2.0.x or 2.2.x.
Do you still have the database environment:
If so, backup this and the grdb by taking a copy of it.
Then, try the dump/load tool as explained in
There are several possibilities:
1/ dump/load fixes it and the created file is in a good state
2/ still problems, and you have the environment: then we copy the
environment in an old linux distro, and open the grdb again with the
previous version of Gramps, and do export to xml.
3/ we find another solution
You should be able to try 1/ yourself. If problems, mail me back.
