include version updated FROM in plugin/theme auto-updates emails

This is a followup to #50350.

In 5.5, when a plugin/theme successfully auto-updates, an email is sent to the site admin listing the plugins/themes and the versions they were updated TO.

The versions they updated FROM would be very helpful, in case admins realize that the update (although successful) causes compatibility problems (with other plugins, etc) and they need to rollback to the previous version (many admins probably won't remember what version they were running).

Unfortunately, by the time the email is generated the version updated FROM is no longer available.

5.6 should refactor the WP_Automatic_Updater so that the version updated FROM is available when the emails are generated.
