Should I turn off my "check for updates" before I install my external hard drive

My computer keeps telling me I need to install updates. Does it matter if I turn-off my "check for updates" so I can install my external hard & flash drive. I feel like if I leave my check for updates on, it will screw the installation process of the external hard drive and screw up the transfer process of my data when I back my files up. Is this possible? I asked a similar question to this, but didn't get many answers.

I never turn off updates and continually hot swap my enclosures and flash drives, never ever had an issue.

If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
