    I have Xiaomi A3 which runs stock android ver 9. I would like to know how to stop automatic android updates as i don't see an option to disable it (iam guessing stock android doesn't give that option). Is there any service or background app that i can stop which will make these android apps to not get installed automatically? (i am not asking about google play store app updates but about android system updates).

    Stock android doesn't automatically update you in the first place. It will notify you of updates, but won't apply them unless you tell it to.

    Some US carriers force updates. Whether Xiaomi do as well I don't know.

    BTW just for clarity you have Xiaomi's stock ROM, but probably not "stock android" (i.e. AOSP). It will contain Xiaomi modifications, as essentially all phones have manufacturer mods of varying degrees. Just saying as the phrase "stock android" has a definite meaning and so using it to describe a manufacturer ROM can cause confusion.

    I believe the Xiaomi A3 is an Android One phone, meaning it is "stock" Android in that it comes from Google, and any OTA updates are pushed out directly by Google. If they're automatic or not with Android One, I don't know.

    I have android one phone which means pure android without any skin added on top by manufacturer. It is not a carrier locked phones. Since phone doesn't give an option to disable updates, so i was wondering if i can stop some background apps that will not show me even the updates available message in future?
    My phone does show me that an update is available however iot doesn't ask me when i would like to apply it. It just says update will be applied when i restart phone.
