Ubuntu – How to hide unwanted updates


I was wondering for quite some time now; is there any way to hide/remove any unwanted updates when I see some in the Ubuntu Update Manager?

  • What you want to do is to "hold" a package, to prevent it from being upgraded. The ubuntu documentation has a page dedicated to it, that will tell you how to hold a package, but with synaptics or the command line, and how to "un-hold" it
