If you turn off symmetry, then both the A' and A" have symmetry A and
you do have two states of the same symmetry. From the look of this
output though it appears that state-averaged gradients only work with
segmented basis sets which is not the newer program that can do
analytical hessians. Your frequency calculation would then calculate
the hessian by numerical differentiation of the analytical gradient
(so disregard my cpmcscf,hess input).
So I would recommend going back to your original input (in symmetry),
removing the 2nd cpmcscf card, and in the frequency command use:
freq,central
