I believe that this is a CAD command:

Please can you detail what application you are trying this in.

In Linux, the move command for files is mv

mv --help

Hi,
it is in the context of vi where we use 'mo' to move lines.

On my vi I try ":1,5 mo 2" and it says "Move to a moved line".  

"1,5" is source address range, meaning lines 1 through 5.
"mo" is the move command
"2" is the destination, the line after which the source lines will be inserted.

So, your command is telling vi to take likes 1 through 5, then move them to right after line 2.  That doesn't make sense because the destination is within the source range, one of the lines being moved.  Hence "Move to a moved line"

What were you intending for this command to do?
