MSF is currently broken, they are releasing updates almost hourly trying to get it back up and running...

The past 2 days have resulted in over 600mb updates..

Are you apt-get update

apt-get upgrade daily on your nix distro?

Also,

be sure to run

service postgresql start

followed by

service metasploit start.

You may need to rebuild manually...
