I s there any way that I can get histograms for the overall latent class probabilities in M-plus? I seem to be getting them only for individual items in my LCA graph output.

There is no way to get this histogram from your LCA model. But as a workaround, you can use SAVEDATA to save the data and class probabilities from the LCA model. Then run a type=basic model on the saved data and include the class probabilities as regular variables. Request TYPE=PLOT1 in the type=basic run. This will allow you to view histograms on the class probabilities.
So you mean i would run a typoe=basic model with the original data as well as the cprobs as regular variables?

The saved data file will include the original data for all the analysis variables in the LCA model along with the class probabilities (make sure to request SAVE=CPROB in the SAVEDATA command). Then run type=basic on this data. You can either use all variables or just the cprobs.
