    How to force a package version via command line?

    Hi there,
    I have the suspicion that the latest gdm update (2.28.1-0ubuntu2.2) broke something because the login screen isn't displayed anymore on my desktop. My question is the following:

    How can I revert an update or force a package version via command line? It's pretty straight forward via Synaptic but I only have access to the recovery command line so that is not really an option.

    Thanks a bunch in advance.
