Remove the package, with one of the methods:
$ sudo apt-get remove packagename
$ sudo aptitude remove packagename
Install the new *.deb package:
$ sudo dpkg -i /path/to/*.deb
After you have installed the prefered version of the package (by using method 1 or method 2), do this to stop your system update your package, as root:
# echo “packagename hold” | dpkg --set-selections
Example: # echo “ruby1.8 hold” | dpkg --set-selections
