Hey all, got a weird issue I just noticed so I thought I'd ask around here, see if anyone knows this to be a thing or what.
My PS4 is running 5.0 software. I have it set NOT to automatically download system updates. I hate when my devices update themselves without me explicitly knowing about it.
Just now I fired it up, and got a notification that software 5.01 was now available - AND DOWNLOADING!! I scrambled to check my settings and sure enough - the option to automatically download system updates is DISABLED. So WTF!?!?! The download completed and it was "preparing to install update" at which point I powered down, but it appears to be trying to finish the installation first. I yanked the ethernet cable in the hopes that this will at least stop it from completing an install before I understand why it's ignoring the settings.
Anyone else seeing their PS4 system update when it's been explicitly told not to? I see lots of people on the web talking about how it auto-downloads game updates, but I'm specifically talking about system updates, not game files. Thanks!
