Use /versions for mailbox connectivity check

Torsten Grote requested to merge 2326-fetch-versions into master

Briar's mailbox status screen used the status API endpoint for its connectivity check. Now, it uses the versions endpoint instead, so that if we've warned the user that Briar and the Mailbox are using incompatible API versions, and the user has upgraded one of the apps to fix the issue, the user can use the "check connection" button in the status screen to check that the issue has been fixed.

(This is specifically needed for the case where the user has upgraded the Mailbox, because in the case where the user has upgraded Briar, Briar should automatically check the mailbox's API versions when it comes back online after upgrading.)

Closes #2326 (closed)
