Classified as *what*?  Gawd but I hate that term, it says nothing.
*EVERYTHING* is classified (terms like that are stupid, donkeys are
animals, this email is public, etc., etc., etc.).  The word "classified"
is *NOT* a description.

If the machine is one that must be kept in a particular, and known,
state, then you can't update it willy nilly, and must only install
pre-approved updates.

Your question is next to impossible to answer without adequate

      * Run a second machine with the same packages installed, whenever
        it pulls in an updated package, copy the downloaded files and
        install the same packages on your other machine (via local
        network, disc, etc.).
      * Mirror an updates repo, do your updates from it as your local
      * Manually download new updates, local install them.
      * Other options, too.

This email is classified.  The classification is public.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
