Using Ubuntu 19.10 with unity desktop. Have used Ubuntu for years and usually have software updater handle updates. Last month installed a program with software store/centre and unfortunately also click on the updates tab. Now software store thinks it should handle updates and I would like to stop this and this have software updater keep on handling the updates without software store from butting in. Is there a way of doing this without a purge of software store and reinstallation if that would even help. Google has no ideas on this problem and does seem to be any preferences option in software store. Thank you.

Repeating I do use software updater for keeping my system up to date, just do not want software store/centre to try to do it.
