    After a lot of searching and testing I found out this is the setting I needed to configure to prevent the pop-up notifications

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update\Display options for update notifications

    0 (default) – Use the default Windows Update notifications
    1 – Turn off all notifications, excluding restart warnings
    2 – Turn off all notifications, including restart warnings

    @mavsafe-9397
    First of all, we don’t suggest users disable Windows Update manually for security’s sake.
    Quote’’ On Windows 10, quality updates (or cumulative updates) download and install automatically as soon as they become available.’’
    Normally, windows check for updates every day. I think yours belongs to quality updates (or cumulative updates) which release around the second Tuesday every month.

    From the pictures you posted, I think you can manage close the Update notification. To learn more about GPO settings. Please do the following steps
    Search→input, advanced options→view configured update policies→Learn more about GPO(font in blue)
