The Jib artifact resolver is not very good at telling us why things go
wrong. The reason is that it swallows exceptions. This patch changes the
API from throwing a FileNotFoundException, which I don't really think
fits correctly in all cases, to a new API specific exception.
I have greped for all uses of this API in the tests and changed the
exception type caught at the caller location. I verified that I didn't
break anything by compiling all the affected test classes and by running
some of them for a bit.
With these changes it should be easier to diagnose problems with
resolving artifacts in the future.
