Just look up the two system apps named "Software Update" & freeze/disable.

This desktop client is excellent for the job:

There's only two system apks that are labeled "System Update". I'm not sure if you need to freeze both, but,on previous devices that I wanted to prevent updates, I froze both w/o any issues (unwanted updates or, ill effects to any other apps/phone functionality).

Doing well, good to hear from you as well.
I'm not on here as much as before.
No access to my phone during working hrs & those are going to ramp up even more for the foreseeable future.

At one point in time, I used to spend countless hrs here for various phone support (root/ROM/etc), but, not too many phones w/US Carrier compatibility have that option.

Gotta admit, I don't really feel the need quite so much w/Samsung phones of late.
Just a little debloating & Nova Launcher (8.0.1 & older) does it for me. (IIRC the last Samsung device that I rooted was the Note5, which was the odd year that all models were Exynos models, easy to root.....)
