This question already has an answer here:

I just installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 because I need the fglrx-legacy driver installed. When I installed Ubuntu 12.04.3 or fully updated 12.04.1, I was unable to install this driver because I found out that they have xorg 1.13. How can I prevent Ubuntu 12.04.1 from updating to 12.04.2 or 12.04.3 while still installing other necessary updates?

I read that Synaptic Package Manager has the ability to lock certain packages, but I have no idea which ones I would have to lock to prevent these updates.

Have a look at this. Also have a look at this. And finish with a look at this. That should give you strong hints about approaches and how to search more info at a search engine if still stuck.
