Can I cancel Managed Software Updates?

Printer-friendly version

It depends on the importance of the update. Many system updates patch security flaws, and these must be installed as soon as possible; in other cases, the patch is for improved functionality, and can be deferred.

If it's not convenient to do an update at a particular time, you can click Defer to defer non-urgent update installations up to 5 times before they are required. The system will alert you as to the number of times left to defer, so you can plan for it.
