This could be due to how you fiddled manually with /gnu/store and
/var/guix. In general, one should never manually touch these
directories; instead, one should use ‘guix gc’ and similar commands.

To be safe, could you start anew again, and report back?
sudo rm -rf /gnu /var/guix
# reinstall from binary tarball
> (bootloader (grub-configuration (device "/dev/sda9")))
There’s a mistake here: it should be “/dev/sda” (say), not “/dev/sda9”
(the latter designates a partition, whereas the former designates a
disk.) It doesn’t matter here since you passed --no-grub, but it would
otherwise lead to a ‘grub-install’ failure.
