I keep getting a box opening up every couple of days informing me that my system needs to be updated and that so many Mb will be installed. I have been following the instructions, but now I am not sure where they are coming from as they are what I would expect from a rolling distro...am I worried for no reason?

Did you install something like Ubuntu Software Center or Lubuntu Software Center by any chance?

Yes.

One or both of those also install an auto-updater (or update manager) as part of their installation.  You should not use that (could end up causing problems) and should stick to using the normal "Install Updates" method in Linux Lite.

It would be a good idea to try deactivating the auto-updater that got installed.  Not sure what procedure is for that, but would check two possible ways.

1.  If their is some kind of icon in task bar for starting the updater, go ahead an start it.  Once up, check to see if there is some kind of "Preferences" section where you can tell it to stop automatically checking for updates.

2.  Go to Menu -> Settings -> Session and Startup -> Application Autostart (tab) and look to see if the updater is listed.  Uncheck the box next to it to stop that application from being automatically started on each boot-up of the computer.
