I want to disable updates to the gnome-shell-extension-weather. When it updates to the newest version, through yum, I am unable to enter the city I live in. I can enter other cities but not the one that I live in. Apparently it's not in the predefined list/database that pops up when you start typing to enter your city. Is there a safe/noninvasive way to disable this update specifically from running when I execute: sudo yum update? Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from anyone about this.

Use "exclude" option in /etc/yum.conf (see

su -c "echo exclude=gnome-shell-extension-weather >> /etc/yum.conf"
