The version of nrpe in Fedora has been 2.15 for a very long time while the upstream Nagios group moved to a 3.0 series. With some work and a lot of help from my friends, I have put an updated nrpe into EPEL-testing for EPEL-6 and EPEL-7 and in Fedora Rawhide.
I have put the EPEL update karma for this to be 4 versus 3 as I would like some more testing done by people before it gets working. If it gets a lot of negative karma I will pull it and work with upstream to get a working version into EPEL.
I have not put in an update to Fedora 25 because it is a major update and was not listed as a change request. I am looking through what needs to be done for this, and when I have gotten any approvals needed will publish it to Fedora 25 testing.
