I am trying to import active directory in SharePoint 2016 but getting below error:

The object UserProfileApplication Name=User Profile Service Application was updated by another user. Determine if these changes will conflict, resolve any differences, and reapply the second change.

This error may also indicate a programming error caused by obtaining two copies of the same object in a single thread.

When I check "User profile Synchronization services" was missing in services in server? is this services is deprecated here in SP2016? Can any one help here?
