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!

The language is irrelevant to the policy

 

you can disable updates via registry keys instead
