This is a sign that too much data was written to the unionfs that sits
on the root file system.

Could it be because you forgot to run ‘deco start cow-store /mnt’?

That is weird.  Do you remember at what point that happened?  Was it at
the end of the ‘guix system init config.scm /mnt’ run?

Files and directories under /gnu/store are meant to be immutable.

Does it show an actual error below that?

Could you post your OS config?

Thanks for the report!
