On my system I had to disable apt-daily and apt-daily-upgrade through
systemd. This command will tell you if those are installed/enabled on
systemctl status apt-daily apt-daily-upgrade
It was a bit annoying for me because like you I was accustomed to only
receiving update notifications when I specifically installed a package
(cron-apt is my pick), which I never did on my laptops. When I started
seeing the notifications it took some digging to find the cuplrit.
