I read that you can disable auto-updating of your games/apps on the XBox One by going to Settings > System > Updates and unchecking the box labeled "Keep my games & apps up to date.

But in my case I have only one game that I want to prevent from updating, basically to prevent issues with a multi-player game in which other platforms can't play without updating and updates for those platforms isn't always available right away when it is for the XBox.

All other games I want to keep on auto-update, because to not do so will interfere with other users of the XBox not having the updates they expect automatically.

Other than the method you mentioned, there is no way to stop individual games from automatically updating without stopping them all.
