I'm sorry, but I don't have any experience with VSS. From what I read
here, this is exactly what "svn update" does.

svn revert undoes any changes you made to your working copy files,
without going to the network.

svn update without a path will update recursively from the current
directory all the way down.

Wrong. svn status tells you status information about the files in your
working copy. svn update requests the latest changes from the server.
Very different operations.

I think you should show us a transcript of what you believe is wrong,
and tell us what you expected. Then, we'll know what to tell you.
