Apt pinning the Percona XtraBackup 8.0 packages¶
In some cases you might need to
pin the selected packages to avoid the upgrades from the distribution repositories.
The pinning takes place in the
preference file. To pin a package, set the
Pin-Priority to higher numbers.
Make a new file
/etc/apt/preferences.d/00percona.pref. For example, add the following to the preference file:
Package: Pin: release o=Percona Development Team Pin-Priority: 1001
For more information about the pinning, check the official debian wiki.
