Sounds like Subversion doesn't think it's a working copy anymore.
Somehow it broke. I don't know how, but it doesn't much matter.

Is /var/www/docuwiki/data a working copy? If so, you can fix the
attic directory by removing it, then updating the data directory.

cd /var/www/docuwiki/data
rm -rf attic
svn up attic

If /var/www/docuwiki/data is not a working copy, then you will want
to check out a new attic:

cd /var/www/docuwiki/data
rm -rf attic
svn checkout url://to/repo/attic

Of course, in either scenario, if you had any uncommitted changes in
attic, they will be irretrievably deleted by the rm -rf. So if this
is the case, and you want to save those changes, you should instead
move the broken attic out of the way, then update or checkout attic
again (as above), then move the changed files over from the broken
attic to the new working one, then commit the changes, then remove
the broken attic.
