Missing validation when trying to add a single alias and index or alias (or both) are missing. The following requests lead to a NullPointerException:

curl -XPUT localhost:9200/_alias
curl -XPUT localhost:9200/index1/_alias
curl -XPUT localhost:9200/_alias/alias1

We need to add proper validation for such cases. Also, in those cases the request never returns due to a missing CountDownLatch#countDown when there's an uncaught exception, which we are going to address on a separate issue.

Added alias action validation
Moved alias action validation to IndicesAliasesRequest, so that Java api and RestIndexPutAliasAction can benefit from it too.
Added check in MetaDataIndexAliasesService too.

Closes #3363
