Software update aborts/hangs when there is no Activities directory

When trying to run software update after my Activities directory disappeared (see #8674) it kept hanging on trying to find the groups.
Looking at the log a thread aborted because it could not write to /home/olpc/Activities/.groups, which was true since there was no Activities directory.
Software update should be more robust against these types of failures. Also we need better user feedback when a thread aborts (the software update panel stayed up without any messages). Same situation when an activity aborts and its icon keeps pulsing.
