Yes, after moving it, you should not have tried to delete it from the
previous location. Perhaps you got the idea that you needed to do
this because the "doc" directory remained in the old location, and
also appeared in the new location. In fact, the old "doc" directory
should now be empty except for the .svn directory and its contents,
which are required for Subversion to keep track of its impending
doom. Once you commit the move, the old "doc" directory will go away.

Assuming you have not been able to commit this yet, you still have a
move and a deletion scheduled in the working copy. The move is what
you want to do. The delete is not. You should undo the scheduled
deletion, which is done by saying "svn revert doc". Then the only
thing scheduled should be the original move, which should now be able
to succeed.
