Disable Microsoft Office available updates notification

I'm using both Office 2016 Pro Plus and Windows 10. I recently turned off both Windows and Office updates. But there's this odd message that keeps popping up:
Updates available - Updates for Office are ready to be installed, but first we need to close some apps.
This happens every single time I open up Word, Excel, etc. How do I stop this?

    Open Task scheduler, and look for Microsoft Office related services (such as sync/maintenance/update) if you find disable it by right click on the service(s). Or check this one, open Settings by clicking its icon on Start menu. Click update & security. Under windows update click Advanced options link. Now deselect/uncheck the option as 'Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update windows'. Also open the Start menu & type as, upload center and click the item. Under this window, click Settings. Now under Display options, deselect/uncheck the box that shows like, 'Display icon in notification area'. This will remove the Microsoft office upload center icon from the notification tray.
