I'm not certain, but I think it is "plasma5-pk-updates".

2 - What does everyone thinkabout the new software updates management
tool? Should I get rid of it and go back to my old practice? (thatis
what I intend to do unless there are good reasons not to) Do people like
it? Are the updates better now that Leap is a more stable system?

You can disable the updates in system tray settings. That's what I have done.

I left it enabled on one system, for a while. And it seemed to work reasonably well (better than Apper). But it was too noisy for my liking, and I prefer doing update in other ways (Yast online update and zypper).
