The recovery code is very complex, and the infrastructure to work this type of in-depth issue is not available through OTN. What we can do through this avenue is provide general guidance. The error is being thrown because we cannot find the end point to recover to. During a recovery process we need to determine the beginning point and the ending point. In this case we cannot find the ending point. A common cause for this is a corrupted log file or missing some log files, etc. Both forms of recovery, normal and catastrophic need to have an end point to recover to, which is why you are getting the same error regardless of recovery method used. What we can suggest at this point is that you first try and verify your database see doc: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17076_02/html/api_reference/C/frame_main.html -- go under utilities and look for db_verify. You can try to dump/reload your data (db_dump, db_load utilities) If your database is corrupt, which is a possibility here you can use the salvage option (-r) to try and dump as much data as possible out of the db.
