I was wondering whether there is a method of controlling which updates are applied to my Mint distro? What I mean by this that instead of having a scenario where you turn them off completely (as per 3.1), I'd like to update everything except kernel ones. The problem is when I do a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, it updates everything.

Any ideas?

Too much Update

For me, Mint do have not to alarm any update too frequently if they are not authentic repositories.

P.S. Don't mind about my words. Just a opinion.
