This is a bit off topic here. As Ivan already proposed, most likely the
password dialog you are seeing is the dialog box for getting access to
your keyring. I'm not familiar with lubuntu, but normally there's no way
to restore a keyring for which you've lost your password, afaik.

SVN seems to be setup on the server to require some means of
authentication. You should get in touch with your administrator to
determine the means to get access to your repository again (normally,
he'd reset your credentials so you can reset your key pair or get
alternative means to authenticate yourself).
