flatpak mask [OPTION...] PATTERN...
Flatpak maintains a list of patterns that define which refs are masked. A masked ref will never be updated or automatically installed (for example a masked extension marked auto-download will not be downloaded). You can still manually install such refs, but once they are installed the version will be pinned.
The patterns are just a partial ref, with the * character matching anything within that part of the ref. Here are some example patterns:
org.some.App org.some.App//unstable app/org.domain.* org.some.App/arm
To list the current set of masks, run this command without any patterns.
The following options are understood:
- -h, --help
Show help options and exit.
Instead of adding the patterns, remove matching patterns.
- -u, --user
Mask refs in a per-user installation.
Mask refs in the default system-wide installation.
Mask refs in a system-wide installation specified by NAME among those defined in /etc/flatpak/installations.d/. Using --installation=default is equivalent to using --system.
- -v, --verbose
Print debug information during command processing.
