Output of 'guix pull' on fresh install of Guix 1.4 x86_64 / 6.0.10-gnu :

guix install: error: libxml2-parent-pointers.patch: patch not found

No packages can be updated or installed. Removing .cache folder does not
resolve issue. Same issue for user or root.

The following is a workaround and only needs to be done once per user:

export
GUILE_LOAD_PATH=/home/user/.cache/guix/checkouts/HASH/gnu/packages/patches:$GUILE_LOAD_PATH
guix pull
guix install ...

Hi George,

I installed Guix 1.4.0 via install script today on a foreign distro. I
could not reproduce your issue, when doing a `guix pull` for the first time.
