That is the sort of message Subversion typically gives if you perform
an operation AFTER a previous operation has failed. For example,
maybe the VPN tunnel dropped and they got an error. Then they
reconnect the VPN and try update again. Then you will get this

Just use the Team > Cleanup option and it will deal with the locks.
You can then do an update.
