This bug was fixed in the package update-manager - 1:0.196.25

update-manager (1:0.196.25) trusty; urgency=medium

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * ubuntu-support-status: instead of checking the Release timestamp in
    the releases file for every single package on the system, get the
    release date from distro-info-data because it will always be the same.
    This speeds up the script by > 50% in testing.

  [ Marc Deslauriers ]
  * ubuntu-support-status: use component to differentiate packages
    supported by the community and packages supported by Canonical,
    override the Supported tag for main and restricted to work around the
    inaccurate Packages files, hardcode the release date since
    distro-info-date isn't installed by default in Trusty. (LP: #1574670)
