  gnome-software wants to upgrade held packages

Status in One Hundred Papercuts:
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  [Steps to Reproduce]
  1. $ sudo apt-mark hold ____
  (substitute name of the package you want held
  2. GNOME Software should not notify about held package(s) as an available 
update. Maybe it shouldn't list held packages in the Updates page either.

  GNOME Software does not actually upgrade held packages but it's
  confusing that it looks like it's going to.

  Update Manager shows held packages in the update list but they are
  unchecked (and unable to be checked).

  [Original Bug Description]
  I have a held package, and gnome-software keeps popping up the "upgrades are 
available" notification.  Looking at it what it wants to upgrade, there is only 
the held package.  I haven't clicked 'install' to see if it will actually do 
so, but held packages should not be upgraded by gnome-software.
