Description

Today dkliban and I helped debug some 404 errors a user was hitting when trying to access their distribution through the content app. Turns out that distribution was not assigned to a publication. 404 is perhaps not the right error code (since the distribution exists) and also it would be more helpful to somehow alert the user that their distribution is not assigned.

The server should return a 404 with an error message. E.g. 404: The distribution doesn't have a publication or repository version associated with it.

If the user requests the root of a distribution that doesnt' have a publication or repo version assigned to it, the user should receive a page that states that nothing is assigned to this distribution.
