How to disable "you have updates" pop up window?

Post by phil.e » 2019/09/26 15:35:22

How do you disable the pop up window in CentOS 7 that notifies users of available updates?

I don't want any users to see that pop up - I should be the only authorized person doing updates on any of these workstations.

I think it's packagekit, so I did

Code: Select all

 systemctl disable packagekit
 systemctl stop packagekit

That said - are you sure that pop-up will allow a normal user to update without su/sudo permissions? (I honestly don't know).

You wouldn't think it would work if they didn't have admin privileges, but it's happened twice to me now, and neither of them had sudo access.
