Hello! I installed Guix on a new system. Like

info "(guix) After System Installation"

I do `guix pull` and then the next command prints a warning.

$ sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm
Password:
guix system: warning: /root/.config/guix/current not found: 'guix pull' was never run
guix system: warning: Consider running 'guix pull' before 'reconfigure'.
guix system: warning: Failing to do that may downgrade your system!

It should not print a warning because the running guix is not
outdated.

Regards,
Florian
