I strongly suspect that you don't have a record of the repository that
subversion is located in.  Look in /etc/apt/sources.list (or use the
synaptic tool) to see what repositories you have enabled.  Try enabling the
universe repository (if you're using hoary).  Then run 'sudo apt-get update'
and then retry your subversion install, and it should work.

If you're using breezy, then I'm not sure what could be going on, as
subversion is in main on breezy.  I'm fairly sure you're running hoary
