As Mike noted, proj.db has changed a number of times in proj releases.
Last person I ran into with this particular problem was because they got
their proj from main distro
And they had installed QGIS/GDAL via UbuntuGIS which installed a newer
version of proj. So they had two versions of proj, but the proj.db path was
the newer.

It was a mess to properly fix the install, so I ended up just giving him my
copy of proj.db to overwrite his.

Lesson: Don't mix distributions of GDAL/PROJ.  Bad things happen.

You can check which version of Proj your postgis is running with 

SELECT postgis_full_version();

And whatever proj that says you should be using a proj.db that was built
from that one.
I've got a bunch of versions of proj hanging around, so I could give you my
copy of proj.db for your version of Proj, if it comes to that.

Hope that helps,
