    Welcome aboard! I've never tried to do what your asking so I'm not positive.
    Once updated, I don't think you can go back. But to be sure, we need more info. Is it a Security update for a specific month or is it the Android 9 update. I can't think of a reason you wouldn't want either unless you rooted your phone. I don't think you can stop a security update. I think you can stop the Android update, but I would wait for an answer from someone that has tried or is more knowledgeable.

    I'm pretty sure you can stop Android updates before it starts by denying the download. Now that the download has started, I'm not sure how to delete what has already downloaded because I don't know where the download is stored. You can stop the Security updates before they start in Settings, under System Updates. Then go to Automatic Security Updates and turn it off. No more security updates but you'll still get Android updates. Hopefully someone else can help with the Android updates. Good luck.
