Default Is it possible to make a specific app never update?

Hi, I would like to know if there is a way to stop a specific applicaiton from updating. (that is not the disable automatic updates and manually update)

Some applications are frequently updated, and eventually you can reach a point where you have many programs wanting to update, and then 1 or 2 programs which you never want to update because the developer decided to remove a feature for no reason, or made a change that breaks compatibility with some devices.

Overall, I would like to be able to use the "Update All" button without having to worry about it updating the 1 or 2 applications that I never want updated.

When you press the update all button, it opens a popup saying that you disabled updated for certain app. It then asks if you still want to update it or skip it. Not automatic, but does the job
