0) system -> admin -> log file viewer -> dpkg.log is the log of what you've installed and uninstalled.

1) look in /var/cache/apt/archives to verify you still have older versions of the packages. that's what this folder is for.

2) uninstall the new versions of them.

3) install the older packages in your local apt archive.
