Have you gone into: system/Administration/software sources/update? and set your preferences?

I need to do it in a chroot environment through command line.

If you don't want to get any updates then in your source list add # sign in front of every line.Save and close file.


sudo apt-get update

Ok so I got it now, so when I remove my source lists in my live cd customization do a apt-get update and it should not have a pop up baloon saying there are updates/upgrades ready to be install correct?
