How to disable the auto update of the skills by msm?



I would like to disable the skill auto-update of msm, as when msm checks for updates mycroft become unusable.
I’m using mycroft on Mark 1.
I tried removing MSM but it’s a packaged required by mycroft-core. So is there a way to disable the auto update ?

Thank you


Hi, we’re actually working on that issue right now. In the meantime you should be able to turn the autoupdates off by editing the mycroft.conf (/home/mycroft/.mycroft/mycroft.conf on the mark-1 or just ~/.mycroft/mycroft.conf on other platforms)

Add the block

  "skills": {
    "auto_update": false

to the file.

For a previously unmodified config the result should look like this

    "max_allowed_core_version": 19.2,
    "skills": {
    "auto_update": false
