    Hello cornelius_butler,

    I hope you are doing well today and thank you for your question!

    You can prevent WordPress form auto updating to the latest version using one of two methods: defining constants in wp-config.php, or adding filters using a Plugin.

    You can prevent automatic updates in WordPress by adding this line of code in your wp-config.php file:

    define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );

    And using filter like this

    add_filter( 'auto_update_core', '__return_false' );

    You could get more details

    If there is anything else we can help you with let is know.

    Kind Regards,
