This plugin is useful to stop you from accidentally updating a plugin that fails when updated. Please can you bring it up to WP6.2?

After I installed it, then selected the plugin to block, it still shows the plugin needing an update in the update screen.

Minimal UI and it just works. Nice job. One recommendation I have is that it would be nice to be able to add notes on the plugins.php screen to inform why updating of a plugin is disabled.

I was a little concerned before installing it being it hasn’t been updated a few WP versions and the were no recent support requests, but I tired it anyway and it does the trick.
