You no longer need the -showyvars-... the -ascategory- tells Stata to treat your variables as if they were categories, which get labelled by default. Using both options together it is trying to label both variables and categories within variables (of which there are none).

Dear David,

Thanks for your input, but it seems I'm still missing something:

This gives me a superfluous "1" below each bar (and below that the
wanted text.

graph bar (mean) Nose= BiopNose Kidney= BiopKidney ///
  Lung= BiopLung Skin= BiopSkin Muscle= BiopMuscle, ///
  ascategory  showyvars nolabel
