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.
