I don’t think it’s necessary.

What do you mean by “my profile disappeared once again”?  Is the
~/.guix-profile symlink still around?  What does:

  readlink -f ~/.guix-profile


Regarding the “unsupported manifest format” error: what’s the content of
~/.guix-profile/manifest?  (You previously posted the contents of
~/.config/guix/current/manifest, but it’s not relevant here.)

In general profiles cannot “disappear”.  A potential issue one may
encounter is that, if you running several “guix install” or “guix
package” commands simultaneously, one of them will “win”, meaning that
work done by the other one is discarded.  However, that cannot lead to
the “unsupported manifest format” error.

Did you happen to run several such commands in parallel?

Thanks in advance,
