Your working copy remembers the unique id of the repository. The id is
randomly assigned when someone (the administrator) creates a new

The error indicates that though the repository url is the same, the
respository id is not the same as your working copy is expecting, i.e.
your working copy does not match your repository and cannot be used.
You should checkout a fresh working copy.
