Plasma Parrot updater

Briefly describe your issue below:

Parrot Updater how to disable it was closed after 10 months but this solution only works on the Mate version, do we the Plasma KDE autostart doesn’t show any link to the updater.

Is there any symlink I need to remove to disable the updater? I use sudo parrot-upgrade && echo $? so this feature takes time every time I have to turn on my workstation to do daily activities.


I dont use the KDE version, so i cant tell you what application/ service triggers it. But i can offer a temporary work around:

sudo chmod a-x /usr/bin/update-reminder

This will remove the executable bit from the script, so it shouldn’t run.

hello, try to delete the parrot-updater package

#Thanks to Matt & Lorenzo. I did followed Lorenzo advise:
#ls -l /usr/bin/update-reminder
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2008 Dec 28 2018 /usr/bin/update-reminder
└──╼ #chmod a-x /usr/bin/update-reminder
└──╼ #ls -l /usr/bin/update-reminder
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 2008 Dec 28 2018 /usr/bin/update-reminder
└──╼ #systemctl reboot
#After rebooting, no more prompt which doesn’t mean you never update on the contrary it is #advisable to do it. In my case as many others, I do it manually.

#Thanks for your time and help which I really appreciate
#Please close the topic
