Bug description:
  [Impact]

  ubuntu-support-status returns inaccurate and misleading information.

  It uses the Supported field in the Packages file which hasn't been
  used or updated since Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and earlier releases when we
  had a 3 year/5 year support split between desktop and server. (See
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/FAQ#Official%20Support)

  It also uses the term "unsupported" instead of "community-supported"
  which doesn't accurately portray the status of universe packages.

  [Test Case]

  After updating, ubuntu-support-status should return accurate
  information, and list which packages are community-supported and which
  are Canonical-supported. Here is an example from Xenial:

  Before:

  You have 1710 packages (98.8%) supported until April 2021 (5y)
  You have 4 packages (0.2%) supported until April 2019 (3y)
  You have 11 packages (0.6%) supported until February 2023 (5y)

  You have 0 packages (0.0%) that can not/no longer be downloaded
  You have 5 packages (0.3%) that are unsupported

  After:

  You have 1722 packages (99.5%) supported until April 2021 (Canonical - 5y)
  You have 4 packages (0.2%) supported until April 2019 (Community - 3y)

  You have 0 packages (0.0%) that can not/no longer be downloaded
  You have 4 packages (0.2%) that are unsupported

  
  [Regression Potential]

  The changes are limited to the ubuntu-support-status tool, so in case
  of breakage, only the results of that tool would be either inaccurate,
  or the tool would not run at all.
