Did you recently run an update on your system?  Have you rebooted since?

I think there is a package that was updated recently that breaks
mythfilldatabase until you reboot (probably a way to skip the reboot but I
never found it).  Several people have had the same issue, myself included.
 At least two of us were working fine after a reboot.

Let me know if it works for ya.
