Almost certainly this is because you are doing the merge incorrectly.

The From: location should be the branch URL and the revision should be
the one before the first revision you want to merge.

The To: location should also be the branch URL (use same URL checkbox)
and the revision should be the last one you want to merge.

Please read the manual again to find out how merging works.
