I'm not a linux expert. And I'm afraid to have problems about Wireless, wired or sound issue because of a system update.

So, I wonder how to stop AppCenter update notifications?

  • I strongly believe Computer system ( elementary os )needs to be up to date to avoid bugs and security issues. so I would recommend to update it as often as necessary. Dec 12, 2016 at 2:07

    Do you think something like this: elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/8629/… ?

I've overcome this issue by adding a custom command to the startup:

System Settings -> Applications -> Startup -> 'plus sign' -> killall appcenter

And it lives still. I just put it to sleep (silence). With this way AppCenter works only if I open it on Applications menu!

  • I tried to apply this to Juno, that is System Settings -> Applications -> Startup -> 'plus sign' -> io.elementary.appcenter But the question is: is that possible that there is no place where to unset automatic update notifications? Best Pietro May 16, 2019 at 6:50

You can get rid of it completely by issuig:

sudo apt remove appcenter
