I receive daily requests on my laptop to make enough space to download and install a software update, but I cannot make enough space for it without legitimately restoring the laptop to its Factory Default State. How do I make the Update Requests stop coming?

    to free up some space try doing Shift + Delete on all files within the C:\Windows\Temp folder
    (doing the Shift with Delete permanently deletes the files as opposed to just moving them to the recycle bin which wont free space)

    & to stop windows from asking you to run windows updates you can just disable the "windows update" services in services

    You could refer to this guide to cleanup disk for space release.
    Disk cleanup in Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

    In fact, except cutting off Internet, we can’t prevent Windows Update from running.
    We can only defer Windows Update some days
