problem in updating metasploit framework in ubuntu 9.10
 
I have installed metasploit v3.3.4 in ubuntu 9.10.
But when i try to update by command msfupdate it it gives following error:
Code:

svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)
 
Error: cleaning up the SVN directory and retrying...
svn: In directory 'modules/auxiliary/scanner/http'
svn: Error processing command 'modify-wcprop' in 'modules/auxiliary/scanner/http'
svn: 'modules/auxiliary/scanner/http/svn_scanner.rb' is not under version control
svn: Working copy '.' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)
 
Error: please check connectivity to the following URL:
    https://www.metasploit.com/svn/framework3/trunk

when I enter svn cleanupit gives error
Code:

svn: '.' is not a working copy directory
I think I have to first make changes or edit some files but have no idea.
pls help..

First, why do you have a dot as the name of the local svn directory?
Second, did you consult the help or info or man page?
Third, can you connect to the svn repository through a web interface?

Hi..
Sorry for late reply.
I think '.' is for current directory where I'm.
Well when I was not able to update first time I'd go for help , info and man pages.
but there was no entry for msfupdate in man or any pages.
I googles and find about svn(subversion).
I installed it and read its man pages too.
Subversion is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files and directories and it contains all the information to permit extracting previous versions of those files at any time.
I found out that I can update metasploit by svn update command.
but after when svn cleanup or svn update didn't work and i was not able to figure out what was the problem.
I posted the above thread.
Sorry no idea about "can you connect to the svn repository through a web interface?"
I thought subversion is commant line client tool.
Whats svn repository?
