Why should it request that at all? You can anonymously checkout the
code, can't you?

I just updated all my OSGeo SVN repos I am following, no problem at all.

Another test, on Fedora 27:

[mneteler at oboe ~ ]$ mkdir bla
[mneteler at oboe ~ ]$ cd bla
[mneteler at oboe bla ]$ svn co https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-promo
A    grass-promo/grasslogo
A    grass-promo/screenshots
A    grass-promo/screenshots/wxpython
A    grass-promo/screenshots/wxpython/location_wizard
A    grass-promo/screenshots/wxpython/general
A    grass-promo/screenshots/wxpython/digitization
A    grass-promo/grassflyer
A    grass-promo/grassflyer/flyer1
A    grass-promo/grassflyer/flyer1/es
A    grass-promo/grasslogo/ascii_logo_bold.svg

It does not ask me to accept the certificate nor should it (IMHO)!
Maybe some local issue at your end with the certificate introducing
other troubles?
Or, it was a temporary problem?
