That's not what "relocate" is for. "Relocate" is to be used when you
have changed the access method to the repository (from http to https,
for example), or changed the hostname, or in some other way changed
the URL by which the repository is accessed, but when you still want
to look at the same part of the repository.

What you should have done was a "switch" (without the --relocate
parameter) because in your case it's not that you're at the same
place in the repository and that the repository has moved; rather,
the repository is in the same place, but you're now looking at a
different part of it. That's what "switch" is for.
