In WordPress we can remove update notifications from all users except specific roles, by username or by user ID. Below you can find a few examples that you can insert into your functions.php file.

By role

add_action('admin_head', function() { if(!current_user_can('manage_options')){ remove_action( 'admin_notices', 'update_nag', 3 ); remove_action( 'admin_notices', 'maintenance_nag', 10 ); } });

By username

global $user_login; get_currentuserinfo(); if ($user_login !== "joe") { // change joe to the username that gets the updates add_action( 'init', create_function( '$a', "remove_action( 'init', 'wp_version_check' );" ), 2 ); add_filter( 'pre_option_update_core', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) ); }

By user ID

global $user_ID; get_currentuserinfo(); if ($user_ID !== 1) { // change 1 to the id number that gets the updates add_action( 'init', create_function( '$a', "remove_action( 'init', 'wp_version_check' );" ), 2 ); add_filter( 'pre_option_update_core', create_function( '$a', "return null;" ) ); }
