    No, but one of the 1st orders of business for me was to turn-off background downloading / installing ANYTHING.

    I don't mind being notified, but I don't like stuff being installed without my permission.

    thanks for the explanation.


    I wouldn't expect background updating this much "background". I got the notification by chance when restarting
