Automatically Update setting is just ignored on update to v1.26.0 and v1.27.0-beta #17172

I’m disabling auto-update of Atom by unchecking “Core > Automatically Update”.
So I normally need to manually “Check Update” to download new update.
But strangely, this time update is done automatically for both stable and beta.
This “auto update” setting seem to be ignored.
I checked in atom's slack channel and knew @Ben3eeE also hit this issue.

settings_ ___downloads_vimconf

Steps to Reproduce

  1. start atom older than v1.26 with disabling auto-update
  2. click "Atom" menu and see that "downloading update" automatically started before you instruct "check update".

I have the setting disabled and when I started Atom 1.26.0-beta2 it automatically downloaded 1.27.0-beta0

This happened to me too. The option "Automatically Update" is disabled since I first installed Atom. Yet, I was automatically updated from 1.25.1 to 1.26.0 (using 32bit version on Windows 7 64bit).

Edit: I remember that it also updated 1.25.0 to 1.25.1 a while ago, but I just ignored it at the time.

Sorry about this everyone, a fix will go out this week in Atom 1.26.1.
