new to svn, having trouble with directory

I am trying to update a directory on a server with new files from the
repository. I tried doing a "svn update" but was unable to do so. The
message I got was" svn: Failed to add directory '(directory name)': object
of the same name already exists"

I tried deleting the directory, which worked. Now I get a ! for the
status. However, when running "svn update", I get "svn: Failed to add
directory 'packages/xotcl-demo-note': object of the same name is already
scheduled for addition."

I'm not sure what to do. Basically, I want the directory and files in that
directory that are in the repository copied to the working copy on the
server. Thanks for any help.
