We see these lines:
[ INFO ] Installing /var/guix and /gnu...
[ INFO ] Linking the root user's profile
[ PASS ] activated root profile at /root/.config/guix/current
which is evidence that ~root/.config/guix/current was created and is not
a dangling symlink. Further more, the binary tarball does contain that
So I don’t see what happened.
Julien, could it be that “something else” removed /root/.config or
/var/guix/profiles while it was running? Or… any other idea?
