Some more history on the setup would be useful. Did you just install it (seeing it is referring to HSQL) or was the instance cloned from a current production?

That means either that your database connection is misconfigured, or the database is corrupt in some way.

As Jonas says, we'll need to know what you've installed, but there's a good chance that your HSQL database is broken.
