The concept you're looking for is 'Hold'. Just move the highlight to the
packages you don't want upgraded and press 'H' to put them on hold. When
you do want to upgrade them, just 'unhold' them by pressing the 'G' key.
Here are the relevant lines from the 'Select' help screen of dselect:
Mark packages for later processing:
+, Insert install or upgrade =, H hold in present state
-, Delete remove :, G unhold: upgrade or leave uninstalled
_ remove & purge config
