There is no way to block an update, apart from not selecting that file
(or its parent folder) for update in the first place. The whole point
of an update is that it pulls the latest version from the repository.

If the repository contains files which must be locally customized then
there is a problem with the way the developers have set it up, and you
should contact them to ask for a resolution.

Note that if you update a modified file and the remote changes do not
conflict with your local ones, the remote changes will simply be
merged in and your local changes will still stand.

You have not given us anything much to go on, like what type of file
is involved and why you need to 'block' it, so there's not a lot more
we can say.
