many a package incorrectly listed in updated section

Bug Description

Today, debian-installer is listed in the "updated" section of any report on Updated is defined as "newer Debian versions are available for merges that have already been done in the current development cycle"

While debian-installer has been uploaded to wily it has not in fact been merged with debian, so it really shouldn't be listed in the "updated" section. Another example is xdg-utils which while it has been uploaded to wily, it was just with an additional Ubuntu patch and not a merge.

This is the problematic check:

                    uploaded = info["Distribution"] == OUR_DIST
                except KeyError:
                    uploaded = False
            if uploaded:
                section = "updated"

I didn't see an obvious way to fix this.

As a temporary workaround I think it is best to just disable the updated section.

I've implemented that temporary workaround in production now.
