I had the exact same symptons. Issue was that my email address was listed as an unverified address in another account under Settings -> Emails (https://github.com/settings/emails) - you can add multiple email addresses to an account. If you are not aware of another account that could have your email address listed, GitHub support can sort you out: https://github.com/contact. Once the email address was removed from the other account, I was able to sign up.
