You deinstalled the Ubuntu subversion package, but your shell still
thinks the svn binary should be in the location where the package had
put it. You can try to run the "rehash" command to make your shell pick
up the new location of the svn command, some shells need this.

Or just start and use a new shell.

And make sure /usr/local/bin is in your shell's $PATH!

If you're using the bash shell, a line like this at the very end
of the file .bashrc in your home directory should do the trick:

 export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"

Yes, you should. In any case, if you type the full path, like
"/usr/local/bin/svn" instead of just "svn", it should definitely work.
