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.
