[Durham] Holding packages from being updated

Hey guys

When I do apt-get upgrade on Debian it shows a rather large list of files
that need updating.  However openswan is one of them and after seeking
answers on github I was told there's a bug in the Debian update of openswan
that stops iOS users from connecting.

I would therefore like to upgrade all the packages listed without upgrading
openswan.  I believe 'aptitude hold openswan' would work but if I run that
then reload the 'apt-get upgrade' command openswan shows up again.

Could anyone give me assistance with updating the system but blocking
certain packages from being installed during the apt-get upgrade process??
