    From personal experience I can tell this is not going away and will just keep on popping up until you make this update. This can be the problem with remote Intel Sticks. Update takes a long time... aprx. 1 hour. It may reboot your device a couple of times and the worst thing, the device may not boot up automatically during one of those reboots. You may need to turn it on manually.

    If you have Active Directory, or even Azure Active Directory, and are running Windows Professional or Enterprise, you can use Group Policy to enforce update channels on these machines. It will help slow updates and prevent these sort of pop ups. :)

    You can also disable the Windows Update Service.  This will stop Windows from polling for new updates on its own.  You can then re-enable the service whenever it is convenient for you to run the updates.

    You can set a metered connection that shouldn't download updates.. if it's a hardwired box though, there is a little registry edit to do. Just leaving this here in case someone is interested:

    Remembering security-wise you are best to let Windows do it's updates, but I totally understand from the IT side it's nice to roll them out on YOUR schedule and not get surprised. ;)
