Chip, is this the first time this machine has been updated in a while? The updater was changed to use git, and maybe
if you didn't get an updated msfupdate, it could be jacked up, however I don't think they shutdown the svn server yet
so... someone else on here will know. You could try updating svn, apt-get update && apt-get install svn I think, if
it's out of date. Just spitballin tho.

I'm receiving the following error message when I attempt to do an msfupdate of metasploit v4.5.0-release [core:4.5

Any hints on why this may be happening or how to correct?
