Comment (by yawning):

 I don't really care about this anymore, since the project I wanted this
 for hasn't been developed for years.

 > Also, OP has misunderstood the pref. It has only ever meant to disable
 AUTO-update CHECKING, not the actual ability to update.

 As people have pointed out two years ago.  This was more of a general
 request for "give me a way to hide every single update related UI
 element", but, again it's a moot point for me personally (though likely
 still something that's nice to have for someone out there).
