Solution 1:

IF :OLD.FLDTYPE <> :NEW.FLDTYPE then
  -- if you need to get error message
  raise_application_error(-20001,'Insert canseled');
end if;

Solution 2:

IF :OLD.FLDTYPE <> :NEW.FLDTYPE then
  -- if you need "silent cancel"
  -- work only on before update triggers, as in your case
  :NEW.FIELD1:=:OLD.FIELD1;
  :NEW.FIELD2:=:OLD.FIELD2;
  -- ... all the table fields
  :NEW.FIELDn:=:OLD.FIELDn;
end if;
