[Evergreen-general] HIGH_LEVEL_HOLD_HAS_NO_COPIES issues

I suspect that HIGH_LEVEL_HOLD_HAS_NO_COPIES is a generic error message
that just means there aren't any copies that can fill the hold - either
because there aren't any copies, or there aren't any copies that are in an
available status, or because the copies are age protected at other
locations, or some other reason.

I would recommend creating a new Launchpad bug report that 1) Requests that
the Place Hold button is greyed out if a record has no holdings, and 2)
Requests that a more human-readable error message is presented in place of
that error message.

> My issues:
> 1) The place hold button had previously been "greyed out"/unavailable,

> 2) What is actually happening here?
> 3) Are there settings for this?
> 4) There are no permissions for the high level hold (

> 5) the silent failure (https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1761238)
> FWIW, in my consortia, the holds are plain title holds, no OUs are set for
> hold skipping, we don't use parts.
