What command did you run to get the errors about?  Could you also show:

  which guix


The new ‘guix pull’ provides a “self-contained Guix” in the sense that
it brings all its dependencies, including Guile.  If you look at the top
of the ‘guix’ file, you’ll see that it specifies exactly the Guile
version that it needs:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ head -1 ~/.config/guix/current/bin/guix
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thus, Guile version mismatches like you experienced should normally not
