Will I get banned from the Switch if

I change it to stop the system update?
No, but modifying the actual Nintendo Switch to hack the system. That's what will happen. It happened on Wii U/3DS, and players got banned for it.

So, you can choose not to update your system, but you won't be able to really play games that require future updates. For example, on PS3/4, if you don't update to the latest version of PS4, you won't be able to play games on it until you do.

But as long as you don't modify the system to do something you're not supposed to be doing, you won't be banned.
