An old question but just had the same issue and found a consistently reliable workaround (in Odoo 11 but should work all the same). The procedure I apply is the following:

(Prerequisite: account_cancel module must be installed)

1) Add journal items manually at the Bill's Journal Entry. Even though I tend to create a valid entry (a transfer from accounts 400000 (providers) to 572001 (back account) clearly identifying the company, any journal item with a non-zero value should do.

2) Now you will be able to cancel the bill. The process will automatically delete the jounal entry as well as the spurious journal items created in step 1.

An invoice/bill has got the field 'move_id' so it's impossible to delete accounting entries as there is are reference to them, and it's impossible to delete an invoice/bill because there are accounting entries.

1. Slightly change the vendor invoice number and enter the bill again.

2. Change your bill status in your DB and try to refund.

3. Delete entries and the bill from DB
