I have all my VMs remediated now that I've gone from 5.0 to 5.1 but for some reason the vCenter server cannot be as it has vCenter installed on it so I'm not sure how to remediate it?

What are you remediating? In other words, what are you trying to install? VMware Tools or Virtual Hardware? I don't use VUM much, but if anything, you should be able to upgrade Tools and/or Hardware manually.

Hardware.  My vCenter server is a VM and I'm not sure how to upgrade it as the others I did through VUM but this I can't and don't know how else

Should be eezy-peezy :) All you need to do is click on the VC VM and see what Host it is on; log out of the vSphere Client and log into the Host the VC VM is on directly. Open the console to the VC VM. Shutdown the Guest OS. Click on the Guest menu item on the VM Console > Upgrade Virtual Hardware. Once it's done (literally about 5 seconds), simply power the VM back on. MAKE SURE VMWARE TOOLS IS UPGRADED FIRST BEFORE HARDWARE.

If, when you're done upgrading it manually, you do a rescan of the vCenter VM, you should see it now be in compliance.
