Try the following:

dpkg --get-selections > dpkg.selections

Open that file and find the packages that you don't want to upgrade when you
do apt-get installs and upgrades. You can change the flag from install to 

Then run:

dpkg --set-selections < dpkg.selections

Those packages marked hold will not get upgraded now when you install packages
or upgrade your dist.
