    KB5014770 is a part of Windows Insider Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.160 to the Beta Channel. So such annoying things are natural in insider program

    Hi @Tim Aikin ,

    Because it is not recommended to stop upgrade entirely, you can try to pause updates for 5 weeks(max):
    Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update
    Select Pause updates for days you want
    In Advanced options, you can specify a date for updats to resume

    You also can use 'Show or hide updates' utility, run this tool, select 'Hide updates' to block the updates you want until you want to 'Show hidden updates'
