Hey there! If you go to cPanel >> WordPress Toolkit for the domain in question, are you able to remove the installation? WordPress Toolkit picked up any domains that were installed with the older Site Software tool, so that is the first place I would check for this behavior.

I couldn't remove/detach using toolkit, might be due to wp installed subdomain deleted, may I know location of script which executed wp autoupdate so I can block it ...

No, that won't be the proper way to stop that notification from occurring, since that runs as a cron job.

Inside cPanel >> WordPress Toolkit, can you try clicking the "scan" button at the top of the page? That will make the tool re-scan for WordPress sites, and that should detect the site no longer exists.

Can you try that and let me know how that goes?
