Description Sally 2020-05-12 22:13:03 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1826676 +++

When a user runs `oc project` but the kubeconfig current context is a project that has been deleted (only way this will happen is if user has no other projects) the user gets a misleading error.  The error message should be improved. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Login to an existing cluster
$ oc new-project test
$ oc delete project test
$ oc project

user gets misleading error: 'error: you do not have rights to view project "test".' 
If user has no projects, should instead see 
'error: You are not a member of any projects. You can request a project to be created with the 'new-project' command.'

The problem appears when you're using a regular non-system:admin user:

oc project
error: you do not have rights to view project "tesla"

with system:admin the message is ok:

oc status
error: the project "tesla" specified in your config does not exist
