Properly handle deleted/no longer available origins
Open, NormalPublic

Description

We lack a proper and consistent mechanism to detect and handle a known origin that has become unavailable (typically a deleted github repo).

For now, this generates tracebacks (eg. https://sentry.softwareheritage.org/organizations/swh/issues/1786) which is not great.

The problem being that each origin provider (forges) will have its how behavior so it's most probable that a simple solution is not that easy to come with.

Also, as @olasd suggested on IRC:

<+olasd> we also probably need a "origin not found" origin visit state
<+olasd> (that's distinct from a plain failure)
