Something like this I think...

add_filter( 'option_update_plugins', array( &$this, 'filter_get_update_plugins' ) );
add_filter( 'transient_update_plugins', array( &$this, 'filter_get_update_plugins' ) ); // for cached data

function filter_get_update_plugins( $data ) {
	unset( $data->response['myplugin/myplugin.php'] );
	return $data;
