Default HELP! I don't want to upgrade my Mac to a new OS

But it seems to have downloaded in the background, despite my best efforts and now it says it will install it next time I reboot.

Is there some way to delete the installed package so it doesn't update?

I have a similar problem, flip side. I bought turbo tax 2019, and when I installed it I was warned: for turbo tax 2020*, you'll have to upgrade the OS to Mojave. My Mac was made mid-2011, and can't handle Mojave, even though my BIL recommended I install it. I'm sure to get more such conflicts in the future.

* The TT message just said I am OK for now, but I'll have to have Mojave next year. I sure hope that means next year's TT, and not that TT 2019 will stop working for me when I reach calendar 2020, or equally bad, that I would be able to apply any updates to TT 2019 released after 1/1/2020 will require Mojave.
