I want to exclude some package(s) when choosing to
apt-get upgrade. I'm thinking an edit to source.list probably? For example, maybe a package that updates often with minor point releases, or minor issues to attend to manually first. I'm thinking of percona specifically.
libmysqlclient16 libmysqlclient18 percona-server-client percona-server-client-5.5 percona-server-common-5.5 percona-server-server percona-server-server-5.5
I still want to run
apt-get upgrade and have it update everything it finds normally, except what I've asked to be held back or libmysql* and percona* if possible.
Then I'm not sure yet how I'll upgrade these others manually.
