The -relabel()- suboption should be within the over() option:

sysuse auto,clear
graph bar (mean) mpg, over(rep, relabel(1 "2004-05" 2 "2005-06" 3
"2006-07" 4 "2007-8" 5 "2008-09"))


If you had multiple y variables you would then use the
-yvaroptions(relabel())- to change the labels on the axis.  For
example:

sysuse auto,clear
graph hbar (mean) mpg gear,   yvaroptions( relabel(1 "Mean of MPG" 2
"Mean of Gear")) ascategory
