There is a nasty bug in Ubuntu's current NFS-share app. I've updated to a patch that I had to compile, it mostly works properly now. But MintUpdate is showing it's icon in the unlocked position, saying there is 1 important update to do, but I don't want it! I've tried clearing it, unchecking it... but the update notice keeps comiing back. How can I get rid of it?

Here is another way. In a terminal:
sudo echo PackageName hold|dpkg --set-selections
To list packages on hold:
sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep hold
To take a package off hold:
sudo echo PackageName install|dpkg --set-selections
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
