Assuming your package repository is at repo.company.net, creating a file called e.g. /etc/apt/preferences.d/company-pinning containing the following will do the trick: Package: * Pin: origin repo.company.net Pin-Priority: 600 The default priority is 500, so this will prefer the latest version from the intranet server.
