If you want to hide update notifications to all users except Administrator users, add the following code in your functions.php file:

<?php
global $user_login;
get_currentuserinfo();
if (!current_user_can('update_plugins')) { // checking to see if current user can update plugins 
add_action( 'init', create_function( '$a', "remove_action('init', 'wp_version_check' );" ),2);
    add_filter( 'pre_option_update_core', create_function('$a', "return null;" ));
} ?>
