After upgrading from 6-STABLE to 7-RELEASE, I tried to rebuild

/var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db: unexpected file type or format -- Invalid argument

Any ideas on what is causing this?

That generally means that for whatever reason the pkgdb couldn't be read, which may mean that you need to rebuild ruby and all affected libraries to call up 7.x libs (at least based on experience that's what's happened with me).
