Hello everyone, I have a few questions regarding updates and how to keep some programs in an earlier version than the latest. My example is with Blender, I currently use version 3.3.0, while the latest is 3.4.1 if I'm not mistaken. Before moving to the latest version I want to make sure all the addons I need get updated so I want to delay updating the program. When I go to update the packages (I have KDE dragonized version) I get a long list of packages to be updated and system asks me to update or not, what I would like to know is if I can remove single items (and dependencies if any) from the list before updating everything. Like, can I add to the base command for update a condition to skip the package 'blender' or something like that? I've searched a bit under updates for generic archlinux support, but couldn't find a way to exclude some packages from being updated. This also made me ask two other questions : if it is possible (I would guess yes) to install two different versions of the same program and if it's possible to go back to a previous version of a program once updated. About these two matters, can anyone explain me if I can access specific versions from repositories through the console or through programs like octopi or if I have to get them elsewhere (in Blender's case, from their site) and install the package 'manually'?
Thanks in advance
