disable Mavericks notification banners

I'm trying to disable (turn off completely) Mavericks' Notification banners campus wide by command lines. Do you happen to know what's the command line to disable it?  And, yes, I did google it up but it kept on saying to turn off from System Preferences>App Store and uncheck these boxes. It doesn't answer my question.

1) Open Terminal and enter the following command:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.notificationcenterui.plist

2) Next type the following command to kill NotificationCenter:

killall NotificationCenter

3) Finally, quit out of Terminal and return to Finder

John-Charles-Herzberg,

Thank you for your quick response.

I do not want to disable the whole Notification Center, just the Mac App Store updates banners only. Hope I'm clear here?

Thanks again!

sudo softwareupdate --schedule off

This will turn of automatic updates and your notifications should stop.  You can then just use softwareupdate to manually install and update software.

serialband,

Thank you for the command line to turn off the automatic updates. My next question is there a simple way to remove Mac App Store.app off from the dock via command line?

Much appreciated!

Take a look at the discussion.  There's an applescript example and a command line example.  I wasn't able to get the command line example to work with my yosemite system, but it may have worked previously.
