Interesting. I think you are using an older Subversion client. For
example, Subversion 1.8.14 prints this when I run "svn update" in a
random non-working-copy directory:

E:\junk>svn up
Skipped '.'
Summary of conflicts:
  Skipped paths: 1

But Subversion 1.13.0 prints this:

junk $ svn up
Skipped '.'
svn: E155007: None of the targets are working copies

I haven't checked in which version of Subversion the message changed.

Anyway, for the OP, my original suggestion is to try another command
like 'svn info' in the same directory and see what happens. Also, if
we could have more contextual information on what led up to the error,
svn version, etc., that might help diagnose it.

Thanks,
Nathan
