Updated software is available

Asked by peter ratcliffe on 2017-04-21

Software listed as being available to update more often than not contains updates to languages, such as French, German, etc. I never use foreign languages so all these do is fill up the disc. Is there a way to stop them being listed? If iIclick on the tick against a language it doesn't download this time but does come up again next time.
