Shiny Updates: Themes updates with no package available still show "Update now" link

The plugins list page gracefully handles the case when the package field is empty in the update_themes transient response by showing "Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin/theme." This is also shown correctly in Network Themes and when you open the theme details popover on a single site.
However in the themes.php grid it still shows the "update now" link which when you click will eventually show a "Update Failed: Update package not available." error. The grid needs to be adjusted to account for empty packages.
I know it's an obscure error, but it may be encountered when premium plugins/themes hook into the update process and rely on the empty package functionality until authorization is granted by entering a key or logging in, etc.
