Kozo,

It looks like some part of Nix that isn't in /gnu/store still
refers to /gnu/store/pwcp…/bin/bash, which was garbage collected
(because nothing in /gnu/store referred to it).

Can you confirm that /gnu/store/pwcp…/bin/bash no longer exists?

If you like brute force, you can try grepping /etc, /var, $HOME
for the full /gnu/store/pwcp… string.

Kind regards,

T G-R

Greetings,

Issue seems to be initially permission based but even if I use sudo, it
works but says 0 channels are updated. nix-env -i finds no packages.

How do you suggest I proceed?

Thank you,
Kozo

Sorry, the path for bash still exists and I was able to go into the directory and confirm it's there.
