You will most likely need to unzip a recent backup of this catalog file and use that.

 

I would put this unzipped backup in a different folder than the original and see if it opens. If that doesn't work, unzip the backup again and try placing it on a different disk and see if it opens.

Fixing catalogs is a rare thing indeed, and I would not count on it.

 

Not having a backup is entirely preventable, and in the future, you really have no excuse not to have backups.

Try posting over at the official Adobe feedback site, where actual Adobe Techs interact, where Adobe prefers to see issues.
