As some Microsoft updates can sometimes cause stability issues, if you are in a critical environment without given time to test and eventually to roll back the Microsoft updade, you may choose to Pause the Windows updates.  The updates will be paused for 30 days.
This is not possible in Windows 10 Anniversary 1607, you can pause updates since Windows 10 Creator 1703 version.

Go in Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.
In the Update Settings section, click on Advanced options.
You can now turn to On the Pause Updates option.

Please note that when the Pause updates period is finished (or if you turn off the Pause updates manually), Windows will then automatically search for updates.
