Dselect::Options "-u";

in /etc/apt/apt.conf. From the man page:

              The  contents  of  this  variable is passed to apt-
              get(8) as command line options when it is  run  for
              the install phase.

Or maybe you could use

Apt::Get::Show-Upgraded "true";

And then you can turn it off using a command line option like -u- or maybe
--no-u or possibly --disable-show-upgraded.

Yes, there are far too many settable settings in APT ..
