Apt pinning 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:

Pin: release o=Percona Development Team
Pin-Priority: 1001

For more information about the pinning, check the official debian wiki.
