Since upgrading to plasma 5.16.90 from the Arch kde-unstable repo, Discover is
checking for system updates by default and I cannot find where to disable this
behaviour. I've checked in Autostart and Background Services in System
Settings -> Startup and Shutdown and in system tray settings.
I had system updates disabled in 5.16.5 by clearing the checkbox for updates
in System Tray Settings -> General -> Extra Items but that checkbox is no
I had packagekit installed from previous trials so uninstalled it. Although I
am no longer actively notified of system updates by Discover, 'Updates' still
appears on the system tray Status and Notifications panel that appears when
clicking on the system tray up-arrow and the tool tip shows System up to date,
even when it is not.
The update notification comes from DiscoverNotifier but I haven't been able to
see where such a service is activated, including in systemd.
Discover system updates is unusable in an Arch system. It suppresses pacman
feedback and pollutes the pacman.log with countless [PACKAGEKIT] synchronizing
package lists messages.
Is there a way to truly disable this service?
