Do the following:

1) Select all books (press Ctrl+A)
2) Save to disk in some separate directory
3) shutdown calibre
4) look at the saved to disk books to make sure that they are there with a .opf file
5) delete the contents calibre library folder
6) restart calibre
7) You should get a new empty library
8) make sure this library works (that is add a single book and try converting it)
9) if it work click the arrow next to the add books button and select add books from sub directories (single book per folder) and then choose the folder where you previously saved your books. That should recreate your library with all metadata intact.

Alternatively if you've been backing up your calibre library just restore one of the backups from before the problem appeared,
