Please provide more information.

Have you checked whether the file really there?

Are you using Windows or Linux with a FAT partition?
Is the working copy on a filesystem which does not treat filenames
as case-sensitive (i.e. it cannot tell apart lower case from upper
case letters)? If so, was that file originally checked in under a
name which only differs in case from what the error is printing?
