HEAD means, "the latest revision in the repository."

Unfortunately, that error message is vague, and is printed for any
number of random reasons.

What does your apache2/log/error_log say?

This often happens when mod_dav_svn is unable to find or open the
repository, often because the httpd process has no permissions to do
so.
