Have you tried disabling automatic updates already?

sudo vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic

and

sudo vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades

and/or

systemctl stop unattended-upgrades.service

and/or

systemctl disable unattended-upgrades.service

I don't know exactly how it works.

You can also remove /boot from /etc/fstab and create your own mount 
command.

Systemd will not touch what it does not know about.

But I would try the former first.













Also if your system if different:

systemd-analyze dot | grep boot.mount
