How to avoid KDE Neon Update to Plama 6?

Please can anyone tell me what to do, if possible, to avoid Plasma 6 updates but keep receiving other updates?

I updated to Plasma 6 and a LOT of things don’t work well, much more so in X11…

Thanks to the trusty Timeshift I was able to go back to the point before the update.

On Kde neon?
You don’t.

It’s in the stable repos now and halting the update on your “desktop packages”, well even if doable, probably not a good idea.

Be glad you have a method of reverting with btrfs.

What you can do is wait a few days and hopefully bugs you experience will get fixed and then you can run the update again.

Yes KDE Neon sorry, I forgot to mention it.

Well even going back with Timeshift I had problems because the update touched some user configurations, but I read there was some fixes released so I updated again, then went back again to 5.27 and thankfully, everything worked.

On the other hand, I just tried removing the Index of /user repo and it seems it worked, now I just have 10 updates related to other things.

In the state Plasma 6 seems to be, more than a few days, I think I’ll wait a few monts…

EDIT: I’m not using BTRFS with Timeshift but RSYNC

Just be aware that OTHER packages you now update might depend on plasma 6 stuff and break.

But now I have no repos referencing, just the official ubuntu repos, some ppa and custom ones.

Yes, I confirm the method, I use it regularly to avoid bugs arising with new versions.
