Basically I get the same error "Invalid group type: base" on either
an add or a delete. See snippet below.

Message: Code(-9005) The driver returned a "fatal" status
indicating that
the driver should be shut down. Detail from driver:
iddleware.grouper.MemberAddException: invalid group type: base</

This is a very unexpected error.

Did you manage to delete the `base` group type from the
`grouper_types` table? Or the `base` type from the group you are
trying to add a member to? You shouldn't be able to do either via the
API but the error *suggests* one of the those situations.

The 'base' group type appears to still exists and the group in question has the 'base' group type.

gsh-0.0.1 1% type=GroupTypeFinder.findAll()
edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.GroupType: dynamic
edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.GroupType: base

gsh-0.0.1 0% subj=SubjectFinder.findById("GrouperSystem")

gsh-0.0.1 2% group=GroupFinder.findByName(sess, "duke:students:graduates")
group: name='duke:students:graduates' displayName='Duke University:Students:graduates' uuid='89802203-624d-4121- a53a-68ad3330bdd1'

gsh-0.0.1 3% type=group.getTypes()
edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.GroupType: dynamic
edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.GroupType: base

Correction. I was looking at the wrong environment. It does appear that somehow or another the base group type got removed. Guess it is time to start over. Oh well, practice makes perfect.
