yesterday, I exported my csv file, deleted one line, and saved the file. Normally, the modified file can be imported again with the modified datapoints. This time, however, I only get the following error message "The file was not uploaded because it contains invalid location fields". This seems to be a bug of the thingspeak API.

The example csv is in the attachment.

your support is highly appreciated,

Yes there is a bug we should have fixed shortly. As a work around, you can consider the bulk update csv endpoint.
