Technically, updating metapost is a simple matter of copying a new
executable over the old executable. But if you care about your
package manager, you probably do not want to do that, and I have no
idea whether there are updated packages for metapost for FC8 available.

However, if you have structural problems especially with labels, then
the problem may not be with metapost, but with your tex installation.
Therefore my suggestion is to post a small example and the failure
message / log to this list before you do anything else.

Best wishes,
