     svn log https://your.domain.com/

Where https://your.domain.com/ is the root of your repository (use svn
+ssh:// or whatever protocol you use for your repository).

If you are doing it from a working copy - which . is assumed if no
arguments are given to log - use `svn status -v` to check what revision
your root directory is at.

You could fix this with a `svn update` But it's just easier to ask the
repository itself instead of the working copy. No need to download
updated files.
