There is no db, just files that are stored in .password-store. Try
asking for list of all subfolder one by one to see what breaks
pass. Remove the bad entry and insert it again, maybe something went
wrong while saving that entry.

Pass uses this to find the list of entries:

tree -C -l --noreport "/home/<user>/.password-store" | tail -n +2 | sed
-E 's/\.gpg(\x1B\[[0-9]+m)?( ->|$)/\1\2/g'

Play with this to see what went wrong. If you are able to reproduce this
then tell us the name and subfolder of bad entry, just the name not
