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.
I also trying reinstalling guix by deleting /gnu, /var/guix, and
/var/log/guix (and also wiping the partition with rm)
To be safe, could you start anew again, and report back?
sudo rm -rf /gnu /var/guix
# reinstall from binary tarball
I did it, for the third time. I always get the same error:
guix system: error: build failed: path
`/gnu/store/kv217jzyir2wx0lwwxl7ljpwc4fzafpi-grub.cfg' is not valid
This time I used guix 0.8.3.
I tried removing that line, but if I do I get an error saying "missing
field initializers (bootloader)".
So I also tried to specify a non existent disk (i.e. /dev/sdb), so it
does not complain about the bootloader options, but I still get the
"path 'grub.cfg' is not valid" error.
(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.
