EOS-update-notifier errors after uninstall

I got rid of the update notifier because I check updates manually all the time anyway, but after uninstalling it and disabling the service, I’m still getting errors:

Nov 24 12:55:27 systemd[147517]: eos-update-notifier.service: Failed at step EXEC spawning /usr/bin/eos-update-notifier: No such file or directory
 Subject: Process /usr/bin/eos-update-notifier could not be executed
 Defined-By: systemd
 Support: https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel

 The process /usr/bin/eos-update-notifier could not be executed and failed.

 The error number returned by this process is ERRNO.
Nov 24 12:55:27 systemd[1292]: Failed to start EOS update notifier service.
 Subject: A start job for unit UNIT has failed
 Defined-By: systemd
 Support: https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel

 A start job for unit UNIT has finished with a failure.

 The job identifier is 298 and the job result is failed.

I’ve double-checked in /etc/systemd/system & /etc/systemd/user and the service file is definitely not there. There’s no relevant entry in my crontab either. This happens across reboots. Why is this still trying to run?

Try this:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

EDIT: Probably need to do the below instead.

It is in ~/.config/systemd/user.
You should disable it with

systemctl --user disable eos-update-notifier.timer

Ah thank you! Didn’t realize there were units in ~/.config.
