    update only using wifi

    I've been searching for this procedure with no luck. How do I get Settings to prohibit updates being made using data?

    Do you mean the settings for the Google Play Store?

    Open the Google Play Store app.
    Click on your Google ID picture.
    Click on Settings.
    Click on Network preferences.

    ....or, turn off cellular data in the phone settings to block. Wifi will still work. Just curious, what phone make/model?
    Just another day in paradise.....

    If using a specific WiFi you also want to block those huge updates from using, under the config per AP you can specify it is a "metered service"

    Great when hotspotting off an expensive cell provider
