SVN Error : “svnadmin: E205000: Too many arguments”

I am trying to backup my repository using shell command:

svnadmin dump $SVN_USERNAME $SVN_PASSWORD $SVN_REMOTE_URL > full.dump ;
svnadmin load $SVN_USERNAME $SVN_PASSWORD $SVN_SOURCE_URL < full.dump ;

I am getting the following error:

svnadmin: E205000: Too many arguments
