Not sure what may be causing that. Just as a stab in the dark, maybe try
it with 'Pin-Priority: 1001', in case something else is setting the
priority of the 1.4.x version to 1000? (Again per 'man apt_preferences',
when two versions have equal priority, the higher version number wins

Note that a priority greater than 1000 will lead the matching version to
be considered even when it would be a version-number downgrade from the
installed version. That may be what you want (it often is, for me), but
it's something that's good to be aware of.
