    I'll try this again. I have a Z Play on 6.0.1. I keep getting a pop-up wanting me to install a downloaded update and I don't want to do that. Is there a way I can make it stop asking me to upgrade without upgrading?

    Unlock the bootloader and root the phone with Magisk, or install a custom rom. You'll never see an OTA prompt again.

    You could try force stopping "Motorola update services". I know that doing that stops the nagging message saying that an update is available for download, but I'm not sure if it will stop a nagging message to install an update once its been downloaded as in your case. Its worth a try though

    Force stopping a system service is usually not a good idea. Regardless, it will either restart on its own or when the phone is restarted.

    To the OP, there is no way to stop the notification short of root as noted in post #2 .

    Stopping some services can be problematic yes, but stopping 'motorola update services' has no ill effects. And yes it does need to be force stopped again every time the phone is turned off.

    Thanks just tried it and so far it's working. One thing I noticed was it was using 2.14 gb of storage. Could that be the update? would it be safe to delete?

    Where is the update stored on the phone?

    Glad to hear it seems to have worked. Don't forget you'll have to keep disabling it every time you restart your phone.

    Regarding the 2.14gb its using - I'm not sure, but I would tend to agree with you that it may be the update waiting to be installed. Mine is only using 148k! Whether or not you want to try deleting it is up to you though.

    Do you need to be rooted? I can't seem to find this in the app list.

    No you don't need root. Go into Settings then Apps, then press on the three dots in the top right hand corner of the screen. Select "Show system". Now scroll down until you find "Motorola update services", go into it and force stop it. Hey presto! No more nagging

    To the OP: if you want to disable that more on a permanent basis, get an app disabler from the Play store.

    It won't allow me to stop it. I click on it, gives me the warning, I confirm, but it doesn't stop.

    It does still work though. It does the same on mine. The Force Stop tab doesn't get ghosted out when you select it and confirm, so it LOOKS like it doesn't do anything, but it does. Haven't the nagging screens stopped after doing it?

    IMHO, your update aversion is unfounded.. Nougat is an upgrade..

    He's saying Nougat is better than Marshmallow and advising OP to let the update install rather than blocking it.
