they are the check new notifications. this has come up before. I found this: If the queued tasks are "Check new notifications" and you see them under the Recent Tasks bottom pane in the vSphere Client - then you will need to open the services manager (Administrative tools -> services, or just run services.msc) on your vCenter server and right click the "VMware vCenter Update Manager Service" and select restart.  this is what I am now doing, so I may have found the solution.  although, some are completing, but some others are staying queued.
