It seems that Akonadi's database is corrupt. I had the same problem (Invalid 
database object during database server startup) last Friday. Restarting 
Akonadi didn't help. So, I tried to reboot the computer. But the computer 
didn't boot anymore. The boot loader panicked because it couldn't unpack the 
kernel (corrupt zip file). I fear that my SSD is dying. :-(

Therefore I suggest that you make a full backup of your hard disk/SSD before 
you do anything else. Afterward check the file 
It might contain details concerning the database problem.

Renaming ~/.local/share/akonadi should have made Akonadi recreate its 
database. Maybe it didn't work because the database process was still running. 
Or maybe it didn't work because the new database was also corrupted (e.g. 
because of a failing hard disk/SSD).
