Fix TypeError on agent lookup failure

Agent lookups can fail as we presently use logging.exception,
better known in our code as LOG.exception, which can also generate
other fun issues on journald based systems where additional errors
could be raised resulting in us being unable to troubleshoot the
the actual issue.

Because of the mis-use of LOG.exception and the default behavior
of the backoff retry handler, the retry logic was also not
functional as any error no matter how small caused IPA to
just exit.

Fixes retry logic issues with the Agent Lookup which can result in
the lookup failing prematurely before being completed, typically
resulting in an abrupt end to the agent logging and potentially
weird errors like TypeError being reported on the agent process
standard error output. For more information see
`bug 2007968 <https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2007968>`_.
