If I simply run sudo apt install package=version, it doesn't install the dependency due to conflict (it wants to install the latest version of the dependency). Is there a way to force Apt to install a specific version for all the dependencies as well?

    The package rules are to protect system stability. Are you sure you really want to do it? (you should only do it if you manually check your system for API/ABI breakage etc, for each & every package it warns you about - these are things that should not be forced; why package maintainers create the rules - to protect your system stability). – guiverc Apr 10 at 8:51
