No CT I don't think so, software update from App Store is not controllable from inisde Notification settings.
Whiyle delgleli you are annoyed by the update notifications, I am not getting any. I have to lauch App Store now and then to check for updates.
I've posted "my problem" here, but no one seems to be able to help, some of us are having the same zero software update/apps update notifications
We should be able to swap places!

This has been driving me CRAZY. The notification shows up every 5 minutes and I dismiss it. I get that I could turn this off for the day...but I want an option longer than that! Give me a week option at least.
And, if you're going to have a preference that lets me customize these options for third-party software, then make it possible to customize it for Apple software.

This "Automatic Updates" system preference seems to have no effect in in Mountain Lion on some machines. We have a multi-user environment and my users are getting badgered to install updates they don't have the privileges to install for software they don't even use. No matter how you look at it, this is a bug.
If Apple doesn't want users to control whether or not the update manager / app store hijacks the UI, then they should remove the option in the system preferences. No point in having buttons that don't do anything.

guess this did NOT show up as a reply to the particular comment for which i clicked the "reply" link; so editing to explain.
this was in reply to HW's reply to suggestion about going to software update.
assume this is no longer an issue. just had to figure out how to turn this off myself. but think u misunderstood the suggestion above your comment. he did NOT say to go to the notifcation center (since app store is NOT there). he said to go to SOFTWARE UPDATE in System Prefs. The fix is supposed to be to turn off automatic updates. apparently that pref controls OS updates, as well as App Store updates. i am waiting to confirm that this has, indeed, removed those annoying notifications!
