I've repaired permissions and rebuilt the database (and whatever the third option was when Aperture is launched with Command-Option). Any suggestions?
Have you repaired the permissions and the library in Aperture or in iPhoto? If you did this in Aperture, try if you can open the iPhoto Library in iPhoto and run the First Aid Tools (repair permissions, repair database) from iPhoto.
- Select the Library in the Finder and open the Info Panel (File > Get Info ⌘I).
- In the Info panel set "Open WIth" to "iPhoto"
- Then hold down the ⌘⌥-keys and double click the library and try "Repair database".
Can you launch iPhoto in First Aid mode on that library?

Thank you. I tried to open the library in the First Aid mode, but it won't open the repair dialog. It continues to give me the warning that the file needs to be upraded. The only button on the dialog at that point is "Quit."

the problem is probably an inconsistent DateModelVersion.plist file in the Aperture Library.
If the library cannot be repaired, try to restore this file from your backup, from a time when the library could be opened in iPhoto. If you have Code installed, you can try to edit the file manually.
