Hi @nitinv, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

WordPress does not (currently) auto-update across major versions, so it sounds like your hosting provider might have performed the update.

Please note that this Trac is used for enhancements and bug reporting for the WordPress core software, not for individual support questions.

Replying to nitinv:

Is there any code to disable auto update of my wordpress version.

Auto-updating across major versions is disabled by default, no code is needed for that.

If you're using define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false ), all that does is disable minor updates and security fixes, which is generally not recommended.

If your site still auto-updated from 5.1.1 to 5.2.1, that was most likely initiated by your hosting provider or other party, not by WordPress core. I'd suggest contacting them or trying the support forums to find out the details.
