Apt won't install older packages unless you use its "pinning" feature.
See apt_preferences(5). Be sure to use a downgradable priority
(i.e. >= 1000). Note that downgrading is not supported in the Debian
system, although it should work for most packages.
This question is more suitable for -user, by the way.
