I have 20 iPads I gave to 20 clients. How I can I deny the users the ability to upgrade to the iOS version when available?
So my question: is there a method to disallow the user to update the iOS version on the iPad?

In a word, no.
It is not possible, either with Apple Configurator, or other MDM solutions, to restrict users from updating iOS when new versions are released.
Being able to update iOS without simultaneously being able to update apps (as can be set up using supervised iDevices in Apple Configurator) can lead to big problems, such as incompatible apps and lost data.
