Use dpkg-hold, a script posted by Craig Sanders <email@example.com>,
on 4 Apr 2000. It works like a charm.
# dpkg-hold -- command line tool to flag package(s) as held.
# by Craig Sanders, 1998-10-26. This script is hereby placed into the
# public domain.
# BUGS: this script has absolutely no error checking. this is not good.
if [ -z "$*" ] ; then
echo " dpkg-hold <package...>"
for i in $@ ; do
echo "$i hold"
done | dpkg --set-selections
