You have been subscribed to a public bug:
In some systems, you have to put "on hold" a package X to avoid it is updated. Then, if you execute
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
it tells you that the package X is "on hold" and that is not going to be updated. Correct. But sooner or later appears the automatic graphical updating tool (I suppose it's Kpackagekit or "kubuntu-notification-helper") and tells you to update the package X! And this keeps happening from time to time, it doesn't learn or work OK.
WHAT IT IS EXPECTED TO HAPPEN
That the automatic graphical updating tool worked like the CLI tool and knew that when a package is "on hold"... must not be updated.
To put a package to hold:
echo "package_name hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
to 'unhold' it:
echo "package_name install" | sudo dpkg --set-selecions
To see which are your packages 'on hold':
dpkg --get-selections | grep hold
