If you're using urpmi (Mandrake) or apt-get (Debian) you can. Which distro? And do you mean lib or libc?

Libc is the basic library, so before upgrading it you should think carefully (it can break many things). Which RedHat version is it and which programs are you trying to install when you get the error?
