Just found a weird case in which an upvote lead to +1 reputation instead of +10:

enter image description here

It is from user Pavel Anossov Mar 25 reputation changes.

Is it normal?

Yes, that is normal. That is the reputation cap. –  Martijn Pieters Apr 17 '13 at 14:11
What is the reputation cap? –  fedorqui Apr 17 '13 at 14:12

OK, Most often it's due to you hitting the reputation cap. You can only earn up to 200 reputation from votes and edits in a single day. Sometimes the last event that puts you up to the limit will be slightly less than what you'd normally find, such as a +6 for an upvote to your answer. –  fedorqui Apr 17 '13 at 14:15
@fedorqui so it's all clear now? –  Shadow Wizard Apr 17 '13 at 14:17
I think so, @ShaWizDowArd Had to discover the "reputation cap" meaning on the links provided. So the user had 199 reputation that day and next upvote could only give a +1 not to exceed the 200, right? –  fedorqui Apr 17 '13 at 14:20
@fedorqui yeah, 199 from votes (both up and down). –  Shadow Wizard Apr 17 '13 at 14:21
Now everything makes sense. Thanks, @ShaWizDowArd! –  fedorqui Apr 17 '13 at 14:23
@fedorqui: Most likely Pavel had downvoted another answer, so the next upvote gave him +1. That is certainly true for my reputation for today. –  Martijn Pieters Apr 17 '13 at 14:24
