The log says

Broken autopkgtest-satdep:s390x Depends on thunderbird:s390x < none @unH >
Removing autopkgtest-satdep:s390x because I can't find
thunderbird:s390x

and

indeed thunderbird isn't available there.

It's a test which started to run when we got isolation-machine on s390x.
All of the tests were skipped before. I think this could be
force-badtested, and I've added that for you.

-U is the same as --apt-upgrade. You can see the exact commandline that
was run near the top of the log file - so yes, it's there.
