It's not a bug.

The reputation on meta sites is not updated instantly (except for this site, Meta Stack Exchange, which is not a typical per-site meta), after you get more reputation in the main site, but it is updated once per hour, according to the What is "meta"? How does it work? page:

Votes on meta do not affect your reputation; your meta reputation is the same as your reputation on Stack Overflow (synchronized hourly), though you earn separate badges. You must have 5 reputation to participate on meta.


Reputation on meta doesn't update instantly, so you're likely just running into a caching issue. It'll catch up eventually.
