After upgrading my color labels are only indicated with a white square on the thumbnails, not the original colors I've set. Also my edited renaming of the set of color labels. All my develop presets are kept.

Color labels are defined by the entry in the color label field. So if you edited the labels, and changed 'Red' into 'HDR' for example, that field now contains 'HDR'. Apparently the upgrade changed the label set to the default again, making 'HDR' an undefined color. You have to edit (or change to) the set with the same definitions.

Thanks, you made my day!
There was no "correct saved label set" but by creating a new label set and identifying the different colors with the same name as I had before they were identified and correctly labeled.

I still wonder why this happened. My son did the same upgrade and his labels were preserved. The difference being that he upgraded and checked "keep old LR version" while I did not check this, and my old LR installation was deleted. Maybe the new Classic deleted the old version prior to saving the edited label preset? Strange since the developing presets were kept?

Maybe your son used the default label set, or maybe he saved his changes as a new label set. It sounds to me like you changed the label names some time ago, but you never saved this as a new set.

I have been chatting with Victoria Bampton, and I ahve been using the same Color Label Set since the first iteration of LR.  So has my husband.  After his latest update to Classic CC, all his blue labels turned to white.  Yes, I double checked, and our Color Label Set was selected.  And yes, that little box was ticked to show the colors in grid view, too.

As Victoria agrees, this is definitely a bug.  My husband did the latest update; I did not, and I am not having this issue.  I am wary of updating until it is fixed!

Did you try deleting and recreating the color label set on your husband's machine Margo? I haven't been able to reproduce the issue.
