first things first: do you NEED these updates? are your programs running perfectly (as you need them) right now? or are they mostly security fixes?
- if you programs do what you need them to do, and do it as you need, then id say disregard the updates
- if theyre security fixes, get them all.
- maybe you go download the updates from the site that its hosted on? ie, browse to the online repository that your package manager searches, and download individual files one by one
anyone have any better ideas?
