Incorrect notification when requests are being cancelled

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go the Recordings->Series
2. Throttle connection speed to Fast 3G in your browser
3. Type into the search field

Actual Results:
Whenever an AJAX pending request is cancelled, the message "Oops! The server seems to be unresponsive. Please try again later." appears.

This is a quite critical bug as it suggests that Opencast is not working stable although everything is just working correctly except of the incorrect notification.

Expected Results:
There should be no such error notification if Opencast is working correctly.

Workaround (if any):
Ignore. It does not actually cause any harm but rather just suggests a non-existent problem.

The good news: Seems like is a new field xhrStatus indicates aborted HTTP requests in AngularJS 1.6.10 and newer.

The bad news: We are on AngularJS 1.5.x currently.
