    Downloaded and installed 'Blacklist plus' by Vlad Lee
    uninstalled 'Calls Blacklist', also by Vlad Lee

    Don't know if the above caused the update?

    While uninstalling I noticed in the 'notifications' that something was downloading.
    I said something along the line of: english language uk update.

    I would like to know exactly for what app (or if it was part of Android OS) that this update was for.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Sounds like a language pack update for either a keyboard app or GOOGLE TRANSLATE.

    Sounds like your not a fan of automatic updates,of which I am not either, FWIW.I'd check each app & system option for such auto options & turn them off.

    You'll still get the updates,but,you'll be prompted to accept or just ignore/reject if you should choose to do so.

    Just checked my settings: But I have 'Do not autoupdate apps' set?
    They can't update automatically, so how come I still had an automatic update?

    I did have an app (gallery drive sync) which had 'display push notification ads' - could this have caused the download?
    I have now uninstalled this free app.

    When there is an update is it possible to show the date and time of these updates?

    I'd still check the in-app settings for update options,for troubleshooting purposes.

    Even if you have the GOOGLE PLAY STORE set to not allow for auto-update,some apps,especially if you side-loaded apps from outside the GOOGLE PLAY STORE,may have their own update option.

    Also,check your system options (MENU > SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE).There may be option(s) for system auto updates.

    'Moto Care' is enabled.
    The update could have happened because of this.
    But I don't know what would be updated through 'Moto Care'
     

Motorola Moto G (1st Gen)
