You updated the file to an old revision, but you haven't made any
changes to it, so what is there to commit? And if you did change it
your commit would fail because you can only commit a file when
modifications are made against HEAD (or at least there have been no
repository changes between the revision you have and HEAD).

Please read the manual page on "update to revision" as it is explained
there. I also suggest you read at least the basics chapter of the
subversion book to gain an understanding of how subversion works.
