Sounds like you didn't invoke the command correctly.

The syntax is:

  $ svnadmin help rmtxns                                  
  rmtxns: usage: svnadmin rmtxns REPOS_PATH TXN_NAME...
  Delete the named transaction(s).
  Valid options:
    -q [--quiet]             : no progress (only errors) to stderr

It will look for a file REPOS_PATH/format to figure out the repository format.
I guess you put the txn name '9279-7lb' where the repository path is expected?
