you would have to remove that PPA from the software source list, in either the Update Manager or in Package Manager aka synaptic,

in both cases, you can simply UN-check that PPA, rather than actually removing it's entry in the list.

Open the Software Sources app from the menu to disable or remove PPAs and third party repos. That's also the tool to downgrade or remove 'foreign' packages..i.e packages installed from a now removed or disabled PPA or third party repo.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
