Fixed in version Marketing Cloud Release March 2020

Summary
When creating a task activity that uses a Simple Update to update a previously created task from within the same Journey, it is possible to see duplicate task activity names.

Repro
-Go to Journey Builder > Create New

-Drag Entry Event onto canvas, configure with any entry event to completion (does not matter/tested on multiple)

-Drag Task Activity onto Canvas as the first step, configure it to create, you do not need to select any fields

-Drag a second Task Activity onto the canvas and select simple update. Note that each previous task is listed in the picklist

-Leave the activity

-Save the Journey

-Go back to the second Task activity and select simple update again, note that each activity is duplicated

Workaround
Configure the activity in one attempt without saving in between edits.

If the activities are duplicated, going back to each duplicated activity and re-configuring/re-saving will correct the issue.
