I do not keep the app in the dock and when there are new updates, it goes to the dock with a small red counter. The thing is that when I install the updates, the icon remains there with its counter. Any ideas on how to fix that ?enter image description here

This is an AppCenter bug.

Check Github Issue #390 to read more about it.

As a temporary fix, you can remove the notifications by issuing

killall appcenter

on a terminal window.
