    Is there anyway to prevent the "Updates Available. Do you want to restart to install these updates now or try again tonight?" notification from popping up? You can click to make it go away, but the options are for it to come back in an hour, tonight, or tomorrow. I see no way to turn this off in the notification center.

    You can't turn off the notification, as far as I am aware. Apple didn't include the App Store on the list of supported apps for Notification Center. What you can do is go to System Preferences > App Store and uncheck 'Download newly available updates in the background'. The notification is tied to this feature.

    You can, but the option isn't in Notifications! it's in System Preferences folder under App Store.

    The only thing that worked for me is to disable the automatic "Check for updates".

    You might prefer to hide the update until you're ready.
