I disabled any kind of notifications for AppCenter and removed it from the dock, but nevertheless once there is software update available it appears again. Why? How can I disable that behavior?

Background. I have set up automatic updates without my intervention, because I don't want to go through update process every time I start my PC. While I understand that security is in the first place and system has to be updated regularly I find that behavior very annoying and distracting.

Maybe there is possibility to stop AppCenter background task?

    In /etc/xdg/autostart/ there's a file io.elementary.appcenter-daemon.desktop that you can delete or rename to prevent AppCenter daemon from starting with the system. Unfortunately, each update recreates that file so you'd have to delete it after each update. I never liked an AppCenter from any distro so maybe remove it from the system altogether.
