    I recently saw an icon which says that an update is available to the phone software. It keeps showing a pop-up every few minutes.

    If I don't want to update the phone yet, how can I erase the update icon and prevent these pop-ups from showing up every few minutes. I didn't see any options to not update and the pop up icons are very distracting.

    Thanks

    Short answer is no. You can't disable it without being rooted.

    Why do you want to refuse the update.

    These updates seem to always have a few bugs and cause some apps to stop working. I usually wait for a major OS update - thanks for looking into this

    The only way to disable the notification is to be rooted and use an app such as TitaniumBackup.
