How do I turn off automatic updates?

My Samsung Galaxy S9 keeps updating automatically. I don't have a problem with that, but I do have a problem with my phone locking and missing my work alarms each time it updates. I've turned off "Developer" updates per the tech coaches, as well as other things   Still it continues to auto update. The latest update was a 'System 11' update earlier this morning. Fortunately, I was already up. 

How can I stop ALL automatic updates? Would a reset work?

As I was waiting for a response, I searched through my phone and found that a scan and update were done this morning Screenshot_20190414-054521_Security & Privacy.jpg

Here is what was updated. I've searched for an automatic update setting, but only found automatic scan.

dmma, I certainly understand using your phone as an alarm, and we wouldn't want you to miss getting up for work on time. Thank you for the screenshot you provided. I want to make sure we are the same page is the phone software updating all of the time, applications installed on the phone, or just the Security & Privacy application?
