Confirmed. You can workaround the issue right now with this command:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23.1-system.so /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23-system.so

Changed in grive (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 and I don't have a /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23.1-system.so on my system. I have a /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23.2-system.so, so I ran:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23.2-system.so /usr/lib/libbfd-2.23-system.so

and now grive is working again.

Same issue here, but the workaround does not works (around) for me.

The version that is available through the default repositories is out of date. It installs an earlier version (grive 0.2.0-1). You can update to a newer version which seems to free of any bugs:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
 $ sudo apt-get update
 $ sudo apt-get install grive

It will install 0.3.0-1+git20120806~webupd8~raring1 as of 7/2/2013.
