Another Solution suggested on xda-developers.com forum is as follows:

When you see popup next time, select the Cancel button and Go to Setting > Security & privacy > Location services > The three vertical dots > Scan settings, turn off WLAN scanning.

Once you do that, now uninstall Google Play service update as this problem is caused by incompatibilities between Google Play services of version 12.8.74 or later & the device.

To UNinstall Google play service updates, follow the steps:
