error when trying to make a tag - corrupt repository?

I have quite a large repository(~400 MB), that's in use for about a year.

Everything worked well, and suddenly, I wasn't able to make tags from
any working copy.
When I tried the command
svn copy ./ <repos_path> -m "bla bla"

I got the following error: <repo_path> already exists

concrete example:

svn copy ./ file:///d:/__SVN_REPOSITORY/RSSTExport/fast_compression/branch/separate_dictionary
svn: Path 'file:///d:/__SVN_REPOSITORY/RSSTExport/fast_compression/branch/separate_dictionary'
already exists

In fact when I try to run the svn copy command as a WC -> URL copy
command, the command fails. Luckily the URL -> URL copy still works.

Does anyone have an idea why WC -> URL copy doesn't work and what
could be done to make it work?

Kind regards,
Robert Ioiart.
