How did you get to the conclusion that the cron job is running? Any log
files to support that theory?

I rather suspect that you have a GNOME desktop in front of you and GNOME
Software is installed, which handles the lookup of updates out of the
desktop session - not via the PK cron job.

The command "gsettings get org.gnome.software download-updates" will show if
this feature is enabled

using "gsettings set org.gnome.software download-updates false" it can be
disabled; but note that GNOME will not inform about any pending updates in
this case.

I assumed, wrongly, that there was a syntax error after reading the cronjob.

Running `gsettings get org.gnome.software download-updates` did indeed show
that it was set to `true`. (It must have been set after installing flatpak.
..another assumption.)

After setting it to `false`, and rebooting a few times (to test), the
notifications seem to have stopped. Sorry to have taken up your time with this.
I meant well.
