Bug description:

  * Packages kept back are listed in the email report, but it is not
  clear from which origins they are installable. This information may
  help administrators to decide if the packages need to be manually

  [Test Case]

  * test is updated to check if the kept back packages are
  reported per origin and this is checked at build time.

  *  For manual testing:
    1. Configure u-u to allow upgrades from the -updates pocket and send email 
with the upgrade report.
    2. Set up the system to have a few packages upgradable from both the 
-security and -updates pockets.
    3. Mark a subset of packages which are upgradable as held, marking packages 
from each of the pockets.
    4. Run u-u and observe the kept packages listed in the email. Each package 
is listed only in the allowed origin providing the highest version. (LP: 
#1848697 covers listing them in all origins from which the packages could be 
upgraded to.)

  [Regression Potential]

  * Unattended upgrades may crash while trying to perform updates or
  while trying to send the summary email. Build-time tests and
  autopkgtests include testing both functions.
