An example is the attached log. It says the process failed with status 1, but it doesn't say what failed or even reference a log in /var/log/guix. The only way to find out what could have caused it is to run the command, which might not fail the second time if it was a network error or (IIUC) if the issue was fixed between failure and retry.

The logging issue is fixed by commitfe42e5f39c9b36f02beec246b376a50e41114b84. At least you should now haveuseful output in /var/log/unattended-upgrade.log.
Make sure to reconfigure and to ‘herd restart mcron’ by Sunday. :-)
Let us know how it goes!
Thanks,Ludo’.
