Steps to recreate the problem :
1) Start F19 text based installation.
2) Provide required information like device for installation, timezone setup etc
3) Continue with the installation.
After some time the installation fails with following anaconda exception
anaconda 19.28-1 exception report

Not sure if this is an anaconda issue ...

The problem seems to be related to type of repo being used during installation.
I ran into this issue while using http based installation repository ( inst.repo=http://.... )
If I instead use ftp based installation repository ( inst.repo=ftp://....) installation works fine.
IBM, did the ftp and http repos you were using during installation contain the same repodata? A NoSuchGroup error indicates that anaconda was unable to download the group data in comps.xml from the repo, which could indicate either a download error or a repository that was created without groups data.

This problem was due to issue with repository being used for installation.
The problem can be closed.
Glad to hear it's working. Closing the bug.
