You might try going into your iPhone's Bluetooth settings,

find your FitBit Alta there, and do a Forget on that device

then, go to your notification settings for your FitBit Alta, and turn the notifications to OFF.

(After doing which, you are advised to complete the update first, then sync your FitBit after that.)
