Just from the limited amount of information you've given, it sounds like
your RRDs may possibly be corrupt or something.  You might try going in
to your rrddata directory and doing a "dump" or "info" on the files
(particularly on the databases it is complaining about); see if it
complains that way...

So, things like "rrdtool info file.rrd" might be of use...
