This is a long-known problem/limitation with the ring buffer implementation.

Fundamentally the problem is that the ring buffer files are rotating/switching faster than Wireshark is reading them.

To avoid the problem you need to slow down the packet rate (e.g., with capture filters) or speed up Wireshark (making it do less work). Just using bigger files may help too.
