How to Downgrade Packages on Ubuntu (and possibly other Debian-based distributions?)

This is an older article but I believe the information is still valid. The technique shown may also work on other Debian-based distributions, such as Linux Mint and the various Ubuntu derivatives.

Ubuntu’s Update Manager keeps your packages at the latest version, but occasionally a new package version may not work properly. You can downgrade an installed package and lock it at a specific version to prevent it from being updated.
