I'm sorry, but there's no string like that in the Subversion 1.8.x
source code. So this can't be the exact error message.

The error code (620018) is the canonical APR error code for "connection
aborted", but the question is, what is terminating the connection (it's
also strange that "APR does not understand that error code," but that's
likely a different issue).

So, do you have a (hardware or software) proxy/load balancer or similar
on the entry point from the WAN? If yes, does it have logs you could
look at?

FWIW, the kind of update you're talking about shouldn't take more than
10 minutes in the worst case over a 100Mb/s link.
