I've noticed on one desktop something from the system leaking out of the Openvpn config and connecting with my ISP's IP. The next time it happens I'll take note and see where it goes. Some time ago I had a similar thing happen in Fedora and tracked it down to GNOME Software, the Fedora software shop attempting to auto update. I'm very diligent and keep the machine updated manually so I'd rather stop that behaviour. I'm wondering if it is the same with the Pop Shop so I'd like to be able to gain control over it using systemctl if that is possible. The commands that worked in Fedora are sudo systemctl [option] dnf-makecache.service and sudo systemctl [option] dnf-makecache.timer. Is there a Pop!_OS specific way of achieving the same?
I'll do some research and see if I can pin it down because I would consider that another GNOME bug that is a security concern. It doesn't happen on my laptop using Wifi with Openvpn.

GNOME Software and elementary AppCenter both use PackageKit for updating and installing packages.

Cool, thanks. I wasn't sure. I'll see if that is the culprit.
