Update Manager Wants To Update Held Back Locally Built Package
Update Manager wants to update a locally built version of a package in the Ubuntu repositories. I built the package locally to add features I need. I suppressed updates via "echo 'MyPackage hold' | sudo dpkg --set-selections"
As expected, a "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" shows the package is held back.
Update Manager, however, constantly indicates an update is available, and that the repository version of my package is the one needing updating.
Can I convince Software Update to stop being annoying and just pretend this package does not exist?
