Bitcoin Core version 0.16.2 is now available from:

  <https://bitcoincore.org/bin/bitcoin-core-0.16.2/>

This is a new minor version release, with various bugfixes
as well as updated translations.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at GitHub:

  <https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues>

To receive security and update notifications, please subscribe to:

  <https://bitcoincore.org/en/list/announcements/join/>

How to Upgrade
==============

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely
shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the
installer (on Windows) or just copy over `/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt` (on Mac)
or `bitcoind`/`bitcoin-qt` (on Linux).

The first time you run version 0.15.0 or newer, your chainstate database will be converted to a
new format, which will take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour,
depending on the speed of your machine.

Note that the block database format also changed in version 0.8.0 and there is no
automatic upgrade code from before version 0.8 to version 0.15.0 or higher. Upgrading
directly from 0.7.x and earlier without re-downloading the blockchain is not supported.
However, as usual, old wallet versions are still supported.

Downgrading warning
-------------------

Wallets created in 0.16 and later are not compatible with versions prior to 0.16
and will not work if you try to use newly created wallets in older versions. Existing
wallets that were created with older versions are not affected by this.

Compatibility
==============

Bitcoin Core is extensively tested on multiple operating systems using
the Linux kernel, macOS 10.8+, and Windows Vista and later. Windows XP is not supported.

Bitcoin Core should also work on most other Unix-like systems but is not
frequently tested on them.

How to view my private key and secret phrase using bitcoin core ?...

Go to the console and type the following:

Code:
walletpassphrase "your wallet passphrase" 600
dumpprivkey [your bitcoin address]

If you don't have a password set, you can proceed to the second command directly.

The initial synchronization usually takes about 3 days. It depends on the number of connections to other nodes and your computer processing power (each block must be verified). Bitcoin Core is a software wallet which is a great choice if you don't want to buy a hardware wallet or use a paper wallet which is less convenient. Electrum is a popular alternative since you don't have to synchronize with the whole network. However, you have to depend on an external server in that case.

There should not be any problems with that. Here you can report you issue with some more details. You could also try upgrading your Bitcoin Core instance to 0.16.2. I skimmed through the change logs and I couldn't find anything similar to what you have described.
