That error means the magic bytes at the start of the binary delta (which
is used to transmit new file-contents across the wire) are wrong. They
should be "SVN\0" or "SVN\1".

I would start by checking your connection. The specifics depends on what
method you use (file://, svn://, svn+ssh://, http://, https://).
