You need to use yum and the protectbase plugin.  With protectbase
installed and configured, you can run yum update and have core packages
protected.

http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum

(look at protectbase on that Page)

You can also easily do:

yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=repo1 (yum_commands)

(you can use the repo name inside the [] in the repo file for this)

Apt is included as an option for i386 only, but yum is the recommended
way.
