This question already has an answer here:

How can I disable automatic updates in Windows 10? I would prefer to install updates as and when I choose. This was an option in Windows 7 but looks to be missing in Windows 10.

Needless to say 'unplug the internet' isn't a satisfactory solution.

Hit the windows key+R and type in services.msc and hit enter. From there scroll down to "Windows Update" and stop the service. I would however advise against doing this as keeping an up to date system is very important for security reasons
