I keep getting reminders to subscribe to the iCloud service, but read my words: I do not want iCloud! Is it possible to deactivate these annoying reminders? (I'm on Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6).

Go to Apple ID and unchecking these items (if they were be selected): Apple ID

In general, every message from Apple has an unsubscribe link, usually, at the end of a letter. Plesase, check it.

Finally, check out a message sender in your Mail app, perhaps, those messages are not from Apple, and they are just a spam.

    Thank you for your answer Andrey. I haven't been clear enough: the messages I get are not mails, they are banner from top right corner, but they often interrupt the task I am in.

    Oh, sorry. I misunderstood you. In System Preferences -> Notifications you can set alert style to None for System Events.
