I cannot figure out how to turn off automatic updates in Debian buster running KDE. I've gone into the "apper" control screen and set to "never", but still I keep getting a little taskbar icon on the bottom that tells me I have updates with the discover tool, and while that's in motion, I can't use command line tools to upgrade.

This solution only seems to work for KDE4.5, not the newer KDE5.


Well, the only viable solution seems to be to uninstall plasma-discover. This is suggested in several posts, for example at the KDE Forum.

One user described in the same thread, how to disable the automatic updates via Muon:

Software Sources > Updates > and deselect "Check for updates"

I could not reproduce this solution, as in my settings the checkbox was already deselected and I received still update notifications.
