Unable to access database after Ubuntu upgrade.

I just upgraded from Saucy to Trusty via a clean install, after which I did a restoration of my programs and home folder using instructions provided in this website.


The duplicity restoration process did not complete due to a hash mismatch.

I am using Zotero for Firefox.

When I open Firefox, an error msg pops up telling me that zotero.sqlite is corrupt. I tried to fix this by uploading the file to this website. https://www.zotero.org/utils/dbfix/

But the error still persists.

When I choose to 'restart later', Firefox can be launched, but clicking on the Zotero icon generates the following error:

Database upgrade error

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED) [mozIStorageConnection.executeSimpleSQL]" nsresult: "0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://zotero/content/xpcom/db.js :: Zotero.DBConnection.prototype.query :: line 149" data: no] [QUERY: DELETE FROM itemTypeFieldsCombined] [ERROR: database disk image is malformed]

How should I go about fixing my database?
