Hello @azednetma

Thank you for contacting cPanel!

You can disable updates by using the /etc/cpupdate.conf file:

https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-b...anel-update-configuration-file-cpupdate-conf/

You would set the UPDATES line as below:

Code:
UPDATES=never

Please note that if you do disable automatic updates, you will be responsible for manually updating cPanel. It is recommended to do this as frequently as possible, as our updates provide security patches, new features, and corrections to issues we have identified. In order to manually update cPanel you would need to edit /etc/cpupdate.conf again and set the UPDATES line as follows:

Code:
UPDATES=manual

After this you would run the upcp script: https://docs.cpanel.net/whm/scripts/the-upcp-script/

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best regards.
