Yes. Essentially you need to install the yum-plugin-versionlock package and edit the file /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.conf adding the text: enabled = 1

Then you can add the packages you don't want updated to /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list each on its own line.

There is more in the docs .

@Woland: The list of packages that shouldn't be updated has to be added to /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list
