The update manager get files from repositories, cache's them and then installs them. If you don't want to install them then just wait for later to install it when you're ready. Although i suppose there should be a way to just download and install later. Give me a moment, i'll check.


Solution:
Ok yes there is. Just run apt-get with the -d option. So:

sudo apt-get -d update
sudo apt-get -d upgrade

and then when you actually want to install:

sudo apt-get upgrade

just remove the -d

Hope that helps.

This link will explain the Repositories:

If you go to the bottom of the page you'll see more links (ie..personal repository)

The files are downloaded to /var/cache/apt/archives
Others have given you the information about grabbing the files and installing later.
You can copy the whole lot of the files to say a cd and carry them to another machine and make use of them should you want to.
