So your solution goes into the wrong direction. Instead of running a cronjob that holds the package, you should find the software or cronjob that is actually installing it automatically and disable this software. One candidate for this is apt-cron, so check if apt-cron is installed and uninstall it. If you use a desktop system, check also the desktop package installer and applets.
Yeah, I meant to say that when you go to the show update state in the admin console, it shows that under not upgraded. I just like keeping the status in the green.
