What does "Revision X doesn't match existing revision Y" mean?

I'm doing a checkout using 'svn co URL DEST' and get an error that says "Revision X doesn't match existing revision Y in DEST". I've tried figuring out what causes this and why an old version of SVN (svn, version 1.6.17 (r1128011) compiled Jun 2 2011, 23:35:08) works and a newer version (svn, version 1.11.1 (r1850623) compiled Jan 9 2019, 19:28:50 on x86-microsoft-windows) does not, but have not been successful.

When searching for the answer, I get a lot of information about this happening during a merge, but have yet to find anything related to checkout.

I'm trying to find an explanation of a) what causes this and b) if there are ways to have SVN not worry about it.

I'm not subscribed and would appreciate being cc'd in any responses.

Thanks in advance!
