Respond so Apache HTTPd doesn't think the request failed

When sending a literal empty response, Flask does not include a
ContentType in the response. While in many cases, we don't need
need a ContentType nor expect one on the API client, Apache
webserver can treat this as an error and generate an Error
indicating a Bad Gateway. When doing this, we also now include
an empty JSON body in the response for 202 messages. For 204
message errors, the message body is expected to be empty.

However, when this Bad Gateway error occurs, the API/Conductor
were proceeding like there was no issue. The API client on the
other hand thinks that a hard failure has occured.

Also adds some additional catches to provide additional logging
which turned out not to be needed in this case, but it would be
useful for others.

Fixes an issue which may occur with Apache httpd webservers acting as a
proxy where the server may report ``Bad Gateway``, however inspector
continues operating as if there was no problem. This was due to a
lack of a ``Content-Type`` header on HTTP 202 and 204 replies,
and lack of message body with HTTP 202 messages which Apache httpd
can error upon.
