Your /u10/~~~~~~~~/svnauthfile contains:

    [Ents_0590_EA:2113:ELA Amd #5 - 340 BCDs:/]

That's parsed as:

    repository name = "Ents_0590_EA"
    path within the repository = "2113:ELA Amd #5 - 340 BCDs:/"

Which is invalid.  (The path in section headers must have a leading
slash and no trailing slash.)

This is an instance of;
paraphrasing that:

     Subversion 1.7 and earlier would silently ignore those sections of
     the authz file; directives in those sections would never apply.
     That's been fixed in this release: Subversion will now error out
     if the authz file contains such a section.

It is not possible to escape colons in that context.  You may be able to
rename the repository (or create a symlink to it and start using that).
