    The title doesn't make it clear what you want to do. Sure you can disable updates much in the same way you can run Windows XP if you want.

    Windows 10 is only supported though for 18 months unless you are on the Long Term Servicing Channel (Enterprise only) which is 10 years.

    If you continue running a release longer than that then you won't be able to get any updates.

    Semi-Annual Channel. These are the twice-per-year feature update releases, targeting March and September, designed for the broad population of general-purpose PCs used throughout organizations.* Each of these releases will be serviced for 18 months from the date of release.* (The Semi-Annual Channel replaces the Current Branch [CB] and Current Branch for Business [CBB] concepts.)
    Long-Term Servicing Channel. These are less frequent releases, expected every 2-3 years (with the next one expected in 2019), designed for special-purpose PCs such as those used in point-of-sale systems or controlling factory or medical equipment.* Each of these releases will be serviced for 10 years from the date of release.* (The Long-Term Servicing Channel replaces the Long-Term Servicing Branch [LTSB].)

    Assuming you are running Pro you will most likely want to run updates at least every year or so.
