`guix substitute --substitute' dies on unreachable substitute server
(name . bug-guix)(address . bug-guix@gnu.org)

Problem: When using multiple substitute servers, if one of the server is
temporarily unreachable, `guix substitute --substitute' will throw an
exception. Example (while bayfront server was down, attempting to build
a package only available locally (emacs-dvc)):

Toggle snippet (20 lines)
guix package -i emacs-dvc
;;; note: source file /home/maxim/.config/guix/latest/gnu/packages/emacs.scm
;;; newer than compiled /home/maxim/.config/guix/latest/gnu/packages/emacs.go

The following package will be installed:
emacs-dvc trunk-1.591 /gnu/store/sraxmg5qz9i4338s4ks7asgy4v68dgqs-emacs-dvc-trunk-1.591

guix substitute: error: connect: No route to host
killing process 13896
killing process 13896: No such process

Expected: Since multiple substitute servers are being used, rather than
bombing out on the first unavailable one, `guix substitute --substitute'
(or any other command implicated with substitute servers) should simply
warn about it before attempting the next one.

Bonus point: `guix substitute --query' should also print a warning
message that substitute server X couldn't be reached (it doesn't print
anything about that right now, just skips to the next one).

Hi Maxim,

Your recent investigation bug#30290 [0] rings this bell:


If it appears the same issue, maybe we could merge them. WDYT?
