I have installed Mountain Lion. Software Update has now been integrated in to the App Store application. I clicked the Update button to start downloading software updates for the OS, but now I see that there are almost 7GB of updates and I want to cancel the download. Is there any way to cancel software updates for the OS that are currently downloading on Mountain Lion?

I encountered the same issue. I couldn't stop, pause or quit from a system software update.

The solution is to disconnect from your network then quit App Store. That's it.

This may have already been solved, but the only options I have are either force-quitting the App Store or rebooting the computer.
