[5.6] User not redirected to sign up page to create first account on fresh install


Originally reported at https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/10007


1. Install a fresh Mattermost server with v5.6
2. Go to http://localhost:8065

Observed: User redirected to login page - however, no user exists on the system, so you cannot login or create an account on that page
Expected: User redirected to http://localhost:8065/signup_email to create an account

NOTE: When fixing, we should add a step in our release process or testing process to catch this bug in the future.
