I can't generate new private key
I enter details for creation of a new private key: name, email,
RSA and RSA default, length: 4096, passphrase.
I receive this error message:
Generate new key failed!
Code = 67108949
gpg: agent_genkey failed: No pinentry
gpg: key generation failed: No pinentry
I'm afraid this is because I tried to do some work on terminal, but I am not experienced.
Can anyone help at all?

the "no pinentry" issue has been a longstanding problem. Luckily we think to have fixed that annoyance.
Could you please download and install our latest nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.
All the best, steve
