Building guix-1.1.0-4.bdc801e is failing on aarch64 since about two weeks on ci.guix.gnu.org.
There is always the same failure during the test. See for example the raw log from http://ci.guix.gnu.org/build/2794788/details:
+ "Wrong type argument in position ~A (expecting ~A): ~S"
+ (1 "pair" ())
When building locally this particular test is passing (after about three days on an SBC with 1 GB RAM).
But unfortunately building locally I get two different failures instead:
Here are some more details:
test-name: verify-store + check-contents
+ #<&store-protocol-error message: "path `dtmp/guix-tests/store/bpl866rgsjyzdczlngfw8ss2lkld6bim-mirrors' is not in the store" status: 1>)
Note the “dtmp/” instead of “/tmp/”. I saw the same error some weeks ago already, but shortly after that was happening, there was a substitute available. But it seems this error is reproducible in my case.

This may be due to a deleted but still opened file on an NFS share. There may be an intermediate hidden .nfs… file, which may get created in such a case (“delete on last close”, “silly rename”), However, the RFC-5661 for NFS demands even if OPEN4_RESULT_PRESERVE_UNLINKED is supported, that the directory entry of an open file must not be removed in this case, thus preventing a directory removal.
