fix(ux): redirect user to install page on database error in home page

When first visiting the home page, users would see an error message that was normal because Castopod
Host wasn't installed yet. From now on, the error is caught to redirect users directly to install
page, preventing them seeing the error and thus, resulting in a better user experience.
