Disable auto-update 'checking' at startup


Hi Everyone,

Can someone please tell me how to stop atom from checking for updates? I have turned off ‘Automatically Update’ in the settings, but I would also like the actual checking process stopped too.

Even with ‘Automatically Update’ disabled, atom still appears to query the same servers at startup.

I have searched the board and found a number of people discussing how to turn off the auto updates, but not the checking process.

Thanks for your time!

*portable Atom on Linux
*metrics package already disabled


I don’t believe Atom knows how to not check for updates. However, if you block Atom specifically from accessing the Internet, Atom isn’t going to complain.
