When you checkout against a tag you are effectively checking out "old
files".  You can't update them as the latest version without a little

Did you actually mean that the versions represented by this tag were
to replace the current versions in all cases?  In which case, you need
to check out the latest versions and then merge them with the older,
tagged versions.  If you've never done this before, be careful: check
out the manual first.
