Subtask of: UAASSCRUM-1073

we should no allow deleting built in groups: admin, translators

both of these groups are looked up by their alias and perform specific functions

Why is this? Is there still a possibility to disable these groups?

We're probably going to create our own groups and won't use these

I need to check the codebase to see if there are certain checks for some of these group aliases.

the 'admin' group can definitely not be deleted and we need to put a check in so that the admin user cannot be moved out of the admin group since there are checks in the codebase for this.

We want to make sure that people don't accidentally remove groups which leads to no users having access to anything.

Added a minor check so you cannot select the group.

With the initial commits, you wasnt able to click the checkbox, but if you already had a selection, of a few groups, you were still able to add the admin group as part of the selection. The check just disallows selection of the admin group
