svn: Failed to add directory 'trunk': object of the same name already exists

From: athi thya <thyaathi_at_yahoo.com>

  I have a folder named myproject in svn repository. The myproject contains 3 subfolders branches,tags and trunk.
  I had to download it to my local machine. I was able to download using
      svn co https://svn.url.com/myproject
  No problem in this.
 But I want to update my code in local machine from the svn repository frequently to receive new changes from repository.
 When I tried using
     svn update
     it is displaying an error like
 svn: Failed to add directory 'trunk': object of the same name already exists.
I have already made some changes in my trunk folder files. So I should be able to retain my changes as well as receive changes from the svn repository.

 How can I solve this problem and update my local copy of the code from repository?
 Awaiting for your reply.
Thanks in Advance.
