Why this AppStore/GarageBand upgrade deadlock

Questioner General

Why does AppStore keep nagging me about upgrading Garageband. The latest version of GB require BigSur, but my old Mac is unsupported. Repeated notifications about an upgrade that is impossible gets very annoying. Given Apples track-record for abandoning old hardware I'm not willing to spend money on another Intel-based mac. I am patiently waiting for Mac-models with the new CPU/chipset which will be a worthy replacement for my old computer, but having to deal with this complete nonsense from Apple in the meantime is pushing me to consider other alternatives.

I can tell you what worked for me in Catalina. I uninstalled GarageBand, then reinstalled from Purchased. Haven't had the notification since.
