Do you see this differences in all the images or few of the images.
In every images with dark areas.
I have opened old catalogs and the problem is there as well..

Are you on Mac, just updated to Sierra?
Lightroom 4 and 5 color management is completely broken in Sierra. See these two threads:
The current Lr CC version works fine in Sierra.
The problem here is apparently that Apple dropped support for an API or a framework used by these earlier Lr versions. Or it could be just a Sierra bug. So no, before you start - don't blame Adobe, blame Apple. They never cared much for backwards compatibility.
Its on a mac running Sierra, and after upgrading from LR 5 to LR 6 the problem is gone.
Its sad that Sierra isn't backwards compatibility, but if Adobe or Apple would care to give that message - I guess many like me wouldn't have to spend that much time troubleshooting. Anyway, thank you for helping me out!

Apple doesn't seem to care about creating quality software anymore either and they do change things for no apparent good reason in both IOS and OS X (or I guess the name is the catchy new MacOS now)
Just as a general observation, this illustrates a difference between Windows and Mac. Windows keeps a strict hands-off policy in color management. It leaves everything to the application, and all Windows does is provide profiles as applications request them. Simple, but reliable, and this kind of problem can't happen in Windows.
Of course, Windows has its own problems, so I'm not saying one is "better" than the other. There are differences that can have practical implications, that's all I'm saying.
