I don't know if this is your case, but I've most often seen this error
message when using an incorrect repository URL. For example, "svn ls
http://svn.collab.net/repos" (not the full repository path) instead of
"svn ls http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn" (the correct path).

The first thing I would try is "svn cleanup". That seems to clear up
some working copy problems, and is a good first attempt.

If that doesn't work, try running "svn info" on your working copy and
see if the URL looks right. If not, something may have screwed it up.
You might try "svn switch" (possibly with --relocate) to fix it. If
*that* doesn't work, someone with more svn-fu than I will have to help
you. :-)
