your icon seems missing....if you right click a Host > Actions, at the very bottom should be some Update Manager actions.

otherwise have a look at this VMware Kb

I recently removed vCenter 6.0 and installed vCenter 6.5 on this MS Windows Server. I can't remember if I asked to replace or select the right MS SQL database or even if I reinstalled the Update Manager... So i just uninstalled it to reinsall and I choose to replace the previous database.
After restarted the vCenter server I see it now.
Thanks for your help, it was really helpful to know it miss and not I'm looking at the wrong places
