Since libaudiofile1 is already installed it is interesting that
Code:
sudo apt-get install normalize-audio
identifies libaudiofile1 as both "NEW" and "extra".

Here's my estimate of the problem.
You have mixed repos, or a FrankenMint. No harm no foul. Stuff happens.
I'd run
Code:
mintsources
in terminal and it will prompt you for privilege escalation
I would then navigate to the PPAs tab and disable all foreign repos (They can remain, just disable them)
and lastly, hit the "update the cache" button/function.

During the "update the cache" routine, you get a new window and if it errors, it may be shown.
No worries.
the "update the cache" button is pretty much the same as
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Close Mintsources and in terminal you may see (ignore these...)
Code:
(gksu:16517): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",

(synaptic:16551): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_hide: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
It's a non-issue.

Now run in your terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install normalize-audio
If after the install is successful, don't be too hasty to re-enable those disabled repos.
This time enable one at a time and hit the "update the cache" button each time a new one is enabled and the problem
child should make itself known.

Please let us know.
During update cache, after, the window just closes. Never got any errors. I did get this when I did install....

normalize-audio is already the newest version.

Sorry I didn't get it.

Chris.
