you can prevent the update of the package with dpkg hold
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto#Introduction_to_Holding_Packages

btw, after the package upgrade the eprints is not lost:
/usr/share/eprints3/archive/{YOUR_ARCHIVE} should be still there,
you need to upgrade it, follows instructions on http://wiki.eprints.org

maybe you need to do "a2ensite eprints3" again
(check /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/eprints3 if available)
