    Description

      Let's compare these apt sources conf lines:

      http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/5.0/ubuntu focal/main amd64 Packages
      https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/ms-teams stable/main amd64 Packages
      https://linux.teamviewer.com/deb stable/main amd64 Packages
      https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/6.x/apt stable/main amd64 Packages
      

      Direct links to "Packages" files of mentioned packages.

      http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/5.0/ubuntu/dists/focal/main/binary-amd64/Packages
      https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/ms-teams/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages
      https://linux.teamviewer.com/deb/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages
      https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/6.x/apt/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages
      

      What versions do they provide:

      # apt -a info zabbix-agent2 | egrep -c "Version"
      1
      
      # apt -a info teams | egrep -c "Version"
      9
      
      # apt -a info teamviewer | egrep -c "Version"
      40
      
      # apt -a info elasticsearch | egrep -c "Version"
      49
      

      So, we see that many tools which provide own repositories, give possibility to install any version you want.
      Note - using native interface to manage packages!
      But zabbix repo does not, which forces to download needed deb files manually and install manually, which is not very nice.

      So it's not possible to downgrade, when needed, zabbix packages in an easy way like this:

      # apt install teams=1.3.00.30857
