My guess would be that, when you run this at the command line, your
cached repository credentials are used, but when run as a hook, there
are no cached credentials, so it's hanging while prompting you for a
username or password. You should probably add --non-interactive to
the svn update command in any case, since interactivity is not
possible from within scripts.

Permissions problems, as others have suggested, are possible too.
It's hard to know without seeing what output, if any, the svn command
is producing. You should log it to a file, like this:

/usr/local/bin/svn update \
--non-interactive \
/mnt/LatestAndGreatest \
>/tmp/post-commit-stdout.log \

Then check the logs and see what's in them.
