Not sure, you might try to grep through the files in /etc/init
and /etc/init.d if you find the one that calls apt-get update , then see
which package it belongs to and consider removing that package (or maybe
if possible configure it to leave apt-get alone).
Or, a quick-and-dirty solution that I have been using here occasinally
with services that fail at boot because the network isn't ready yet, you
can try to restart that service (or simply force another apt-get update)
with a line like
    printf "apt-get update" | at now + 2 minutes
somewhere where it is sure to be called close to the end of the boot

I think the first solution is certainly the better one, though :-)
