Disabling Visual Studio Code update notification

For the latest versions of VS code (I am using version 1.32.2) the parameter "update.channel": "none" is deprecated. To disable updates use "update.mode": "none"

To date, we can't deactivate only the update notification. Either you stop update, or you deactivate all notifications. For the latter: go to settings (ctrl+,) then add:

"editor.parameterHints": false

Go to File > Preferences > Settings (or hit Ctrl-,)

Here two files will open. One is "Default Settings" and other is "User Settings".

Add a new parameter in "User Settings"

"update.mode": "none"

Then save the files, VS Code will ask you to restart, and then you won't receive the update message.

In GUI configuration, the setting will look like this:

Go in the settings with ctrl+,.

Then set "update.mode" to "manual".

VS Code will no longer check for updates on its own, but you will still be able to update it when you want to, by clicking on the cog at the bottom left:
