    With disabled updates it stops doing that.

    I disabled windows update looong time ago (I'm still on 1803, maybe it's time to move on...).
    Not just disabled updates, but prevented windows to turn it back on again.
    No popups.
    No searching for updates in the background.
    No sudden restarts.


    In the registry modify the startup type of the wuauserv service to disabled and remove all permissions for this key - except for yourself. This way windows cannot turn it back on again.
