Disable update checking

I have 9.2.0 with updates set to manual and show update notification disabled and yet it is still both checking for new versions and still prompting to update. If I say No the same prompt comes back again and again every time Kodi starts.

I don’t care for myself but there are people who use this that are confused by the update prompts.

Is there a way either to simply disable update checking so that it never looks to see if a new version exists or a way to have new updates applied automatically on reboot without any prompts ever showing on screen?

No, either updates are automatic or manual, when you select manual then you are prompted for the update instead of them being automatically downloaded.

The update notification setting only works if you have it updates set on auto and want it to silently update.
