Cancelling a task group with no tasks throws a 404
If a task group such as applicability generation has no tasks, it throws an error. This is incredibly confusing to the point that i thought i was doing something wrong. A user would not expect that when given a task group id, canceling that task group would throw a 404.
To reproduce, generate applicability for a repository with no bound consumers, grab the task id, and attempt to cancel it.

Task groups are not stored in a collection of their own. Task groups only exist as a field in the TaskStatus collection. As a result a task group with 0 tasks associated with it is the same as a task group that does not exist. Fixing this would require adding a separate collection for tracking task groups. This collection would need to store a group id at minimum.
