Turns out that, although both my user and root could start Armitage, sudo Armitage was tripping me up.

gksu -w armitage solves the problem.

An aside: I noticed that Menu>Help>About shows version 1.4.11. I assume that is just a lingering todo for the menu. (I am in fact running armitage 08.13.15-4)

make sure database.yml is filled out correctly in ~/.msf4 for your user

if you are running as root, it needs to be in /root/.msf4

you can run msfrpcd as root and then connect armitage to it as an unprivledged user if you want root only nmap options or such

edit: confirmed working on my desktop

I'm stumped. I had this working on several machines in the past. Everything in the wiki related to metasploit works. I also have the missing database.yml error (nonsense, it's there). However, in my case, it fails from the terminal too.

for a bizarre reason it runs properly through terminal, it connects to the db and everything, but if I click the armitage launch icon it says it can't find database.yml..
