If he were using Synaptic, he wouldn't be having the problem as it has a 
simple set-up in "settings" "repositories" "updates" where you get the choice 
of  "Never" "Normal Releases" or "Long term support releases only"  which of 
course makes Update Manager work as expected.  He is trying to do this 
without the tools which were made to make it easy.  Yes, it works for me too.
