Issue:
cancel button shows up in the catalog request details page even the request is in completed or closed status
Environment:
service  catalog 17.1  
Cause:
It is not the problem .   Whether  a catalog request  with Completed status can be cancelled or not  is based on your catalog system's setting in Catalog -> Configuration -> Request Management Configuration - >  locate "Cancel Completed Requests"   configurable setting :

If it is "Yes"  , that means your catalog system allows to cancel the catalog request with "Completed" status .
If it is "No"  ,   that means your catalog system does NOT  allows to cancel the catalog request with "Completed" status .
Resolution:
If you want your catalog system  not allow to cancel the catalog request with "Completed" status ,  you will need to go to Catalog -> Configuration -> Request Management Configuration - >  locate "Cancel Completed Requests"   configurable setting   , and uncheck it  ( i.e  set it as No ) :
