Are you talking firmware updates or app updates? You have to go in the play store, settings and unchecked the auto update box. I think the firmware/software updates can only be denied like 5 times before it doesn't ask you and goes ahead with the update. I could very well be wrong on that though.
You need to turn off Windows updates. For this go to the Control Panel--->Windows Updates and select Turn off windows updates. If the problem still there, take the backup of your documents and desktop in a mass storage or another drive of your computer and install a new copy of Windows and after finishing installation of Windows first turn off Windows Updates.
Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3
- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive) - A PC with Internet access - Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive
2. Downloading and saving the software

Create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the storage media or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Download the update data and save it in the UPDATE folder created in step 1.
Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3™ system will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.
Location: Save in the “PS3” folder > “UPDATE” folder
File name: Save as file name “PS3UPDAT.PUP”.
Do not turn off the PS3™ system or remove the storage media or USB device during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
The power button on the PS3™ system front is not active during an update.
Insert the storage media or USB device that contains the update data in the PS3™ system.
From the home menu, select (Settings) > (System Update), and then press the button.
Select [Update via Storage Media], and then press the button.
The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.
Start the update data.
Press the button to start the update data. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.
Confirm that the update was successful. After the update has been completed, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information]. If the System Software field displays the version number of the update, the update was successful.
