How can I stop the Ubuntu Update from trying to download Google Chrome when it notifies me of updates?
I uncheck it every time, but it keeps coming back.

Firstly I suggest you to install Chromium instead of Chrome. They only have slight difference but Chromium is in Ubuntu packages and fits Ubuntu better.
Then, to disable update of Chromium, firstly you need to pick the version you like.
After that, you can "Lock" the version now. Still in Synaptic Package Manager, hit "Package"->"Lock version". Done.
Now your favourite version is locked. Ubuntu will no longer notify you any updates until you unlock it.
