Trouble to update package list / install a package

NPM has a strange behavior. I refreshed the package list, then I aborted it and closed Visual Studio. After that the list is missing and the button to refresh isn't available. Also the package.json on new projects are damaged. There is an error message which says the json-file is not readable. After trying a few times I can now install packages by their name but the json-file doesn't get any updates.

Any suggestions on this issue?
