What is the connection between switching to "gnome" and turning off updates?

Wouldn't be easier to configure the settings manually from System settings? System tools - Updating settings or something like this.. i use another locale, don't know the exact name in English.

Update manager > settings > Check for updates "Daily" , turn it to "never" .

it doesnt work if you dump the unity desktop which some of us did.. The settings wont take. I need terminal code that has been found to work.

Well then:

Using your favorite editor open the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic and change:

APT:: Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1";


APT:: Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "0";

That’s it. Automatic update is now off.
