resharper extension manager update errors

it always shows "nuget support for resharper" as an available update.
Clicking update check the box, but nothing happens and if you switch to installed then updates it shows again as updatable.
Restarting vs or uninstalling this extension won't change anything.

With another extension "JetBox" there is another problem. It has the same bug as nuget above, but if i uninstall JetBox the updates content displays the famous .net  "exception object not set to an instance of an object"

Any idea to fix ?

This is an issue raised by the JetBox plugin. When you restore new versions of plugins, the old versions aren't removed, and when checking for updates, it looks at all installed packages, rather than the latest version of each package. This has been fixed in 8.2.1, but to fix it manually is pretty easy. Open explorer and go to %LOCALAPPDATA%\JetBrains\ReSharper\vAny\packages. You should see more than one version of a couple of folders - the nuget folder, JetBox, and possible more. Delete the old folders and restart VS. The problem should go away now.
