Check if rep-cache.db is created and filled? Check if representation sharing is enabled?

Does the same happen for svnadmin hotcopy?

Sometimes, e.g. when not using representation sharing.

error during svnsync, or is this the normal behaviour?

Depends on usage, yes they can be different if the rep sharing database differs or is enabled
