Yes, just revert it. I think the manual has been updated to include that

Yes, until you commit.

See above, but it still won't get rid of the error. SVN is _very_
careful about not losing your local data, so it will not overwrite an
unversioned file with a versioned one - just in case you happen to have
a file with the same name as a completely different one someone else has
added. The only way you will get Update to work is to delete or rename
your local file.
