Unfortunately the Template does not have en-GB there's only en-US so I am stuck!! The mechanism doesn't work. Even when I try to set the setting to disabled, it doesn't reflect because my browser version is en-GB!

What are Microsoft thinking? When I check the Edge Chromium updater it is still auto-searching for the update. It doesn't show disabled. So this template isn't actually working due to lack of en-GB language option.

The language is irrelevant to the policy

 

you can disable updates via registry keys instead

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
