Package pinning is probably not a good idea. I've noticed that there are
some libraries that require gnupg >= 2.x and you would not be able to
install those. They came from Zentyal repo so I assume they might be
essential for some features.

Better workaround is to download newer python-apt from here [1] and
install it manually with dpkg. The guest agent seems to work OK with it.
There's much less chance of breaking something else, also newer
python-apt will be picked-up automatically on upgrades.
