This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

That is a fairly simple setting you can set from Synaptic Package Manager.

Select the package you do not want to upgrade, then head over to the menubar and click Package->Lock Version

This will force the selected package not to upgrade.
