I get this sometimes since updating to iOS 6. Here's what works for me, I can generally go to each app in question and tap it (like I'm trying to launch the app), wait a few seconds and the update seems to always proceed after that. It's like it needs an individual kick-start to get it going. I then wait for it to finish, and repeat the same procedure for each app waiting to update.
I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.

Hi all, I'm new here and rather than start a new thread I have the exact same topic. I've tried tapping the icons and nothing happens. I've shut down the phone and nothing happens. Any ideas please, I'm missing my apps.......
Welcome, and you're not ignorant peanut... You'll see soon enough how some things are here. In any case, get back with more info regarding the wait times when upgrading your apps. Have you found a solution? This is not a normal occurrence.
