When the Automatically update the workflow status to the current stage name option is selected in SharePoint Designer, SharePoint must edit the list page to change the workflow status. A user needs edit permissions on the list to edit the workflow status. If a user does not have edit permissions on the list, the workflow enters a suspended state.


please check that user's email id is it valid.please check its email id before assigning the task. I think its email id is not configured.
