Bug Description

I ran ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported on an Ubuntu 14.04 with the -lts-xenial stack installed and was told that those packages were unsupported.

bdmurray@clean-trusty-amd64:~$ ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported
Support status summary of 'clean-trusty-amd64':

Your Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is supported until April 2019.

This unfortunately contradicts hwe-support-status which says:

Your Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is supported until April 2019.

This is because the "Supported:" field is missing for the -lts-xenial packages.
