Seriously tho, has it ever been connected to a wireless network? It's possible it pings Nintendo servers for update data even if you made it forget the network.
this Switch system has before, yes. But even if I forget the netwrok? I guess that could be a way huh? It just seems... not right... if it forgets the connection. The connection had a pass too... It's weird.

I was on 4.0. I was alerted of the system update to 4.1 without any internet connection. NO way to connect to the internet, and I was still alerted. The game cart asked for an update too. Same thing. No internet. C'mon guy. READ
Ok I do love how Nintendo is being sneaky with updates

This same thing happened to me, how is this possible? Also, I think this other guy is trolling with the “why don’t you update to the latest” stuff. There’s no way someone is that clueless and missing the whole point entirely. How does a system with NO INTERNET CONNECTION know that there is an update. If you buy a console on 3.0 and you have NO INTERNET CONNECTION and you buy a game that carries an update for 3.1 then it makes sense but how does it prompt you for a 4.0 update with NO INTERNET CONNECTION and the same exact game with only a 3.1 update! Mario Odyssey can’t have 3.1, 3.2, 4.0 and every future update built in.

If its not that huge of a problem just update. There's a way to suppress said updates completely and forever (well, virtually forever possible*) I think but I kind of forgot how, you can also try disabling "auto connect to internet" somewhere in the Nintendo Switch settings to stop connecting to wifi automatically. The same happened with my Nintendo Switch at some point and I had to re-configure my DNS Settings to block updates when I still wanted Homebrew.

No you're not understanding though. EVERYTHING is disabled on my switch. No networks around (except this one, I'm currently on, WEP2 protected, etc. Not registered in my Switch), I have airplane mode on, I never bring my Switch anywhere else. There's absolutely no way it could connect to the internet.
