Add optional 'source'/'repo' column to overview #77

I'd love to have an optional column source (or repo) in the main overview which shows which package upgrades are available.

I'm using many repositories/PPAs, and currently it's very cumbersome to find out that each repo is only providing upgrades for those package I installed the repo for in the first place (as technically, nothing prevents a repo, once added and trusted, to install a new version of, say, Firefox, during an upgrade). I know there's apt-pinning, but not in all cases it's a feasible solution (as it requires research about which dependencies of a package might not be related name-wise).

If mintupdate had this repository column, I could quickly skim that info before clicking on "Install Updates", and would have a working workflow without needing apt-pinning.

xenopeek commented Aug 31, 2016 knows the package origin already so this might just need an optional column programmed. But the origin is as Synaptic also shows it, like "LP-PPA-webupd8team-y-ppa-manager/xenial" for what is shown in Software Sources instead as "webupd8team/y-ppa-manager".
