I've corrected the address so we're no longer off-list.)

I'll admit I didn't test version 2.18 (and forgot
to update the version statement). It looks like that
bar line didn't exist at the time, so you need to
define it (as you had started doing in your original example):

\version "2.18.2"

#(define-bar-line ".|:-|." "|." ".|:" "")

\relative c'' {

\time 2/4

  \repeat volta 2 {
  c4 c | c c |
  \alternative {
    { d b }
    { c b^"Fine" }


  \repeat volta 2 {
    \bar ".|:-|."
  c4 c | c c |
  \alternative {
    { d b }
    { c b^"D. C. al Fine" }
  \bar "||"

Wouldn't you be better off with a recent version of
LilyPond though? LilyPond 2.18 is from 2014, few people
use it today, so you'll get better answers on mailing
lists if your upgrade to 2.22. The convert-ly program
can update the syntax of your input files automatically
(in Frescobaldi: Tools > Update with convert-ly),
usually leaving very little to be updated manually.
