    Default non at all vs. nothing whatsoever

    I'm sorry, but this is none at all / nothing whatsoever to do with you!

    The sentence is from my workbook and I have to choose the best phrase. I know the second one is correct, but why isn't the first one too? They both mean the same.

    Thanks!
