This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to disable per-package updates? I love Clementine, but the 1.1 version removed a crucial feature. I'd like to stick with the 1.0 version installed via a downloaded .deb package.

Can I somehow disable updates for it, or do I have to check the update manager every time? The updated version is in the base sources of Ubuntu, so I can't just remove a PPA.

Found a duplicate (was using other words): Still leave it there though, so that it's easier to find. – mreq Feb 26 '13 at 8:03

You can always run your updates and select what to install or what not. So when you see an update for Clementine simply deselect the update in the update-manager, and you'll come out fine.

The downside is that you'll have to deselect it each time you run your updates.

This is the easiest way.

I exactly stated or do I have to check the update manager every time?. But found a better way, see the comments. – mreq Feb 26 '13 at 8:14
