How to disable WordPress automatic updates

There are two methods to disable WordPress automatic update feature.

Method 1 (Recommended)
Edit your wp-config.php file and add the following line.

Method 2 (Advanced)
Make use of the automatic_updater_disabled and/or auto_update_core WordPress filters.
