You mean no longer in $PATH?

What do you mean by your “manifest file was still working”?

It would be great if you could paste commands that you typed and their
output, so we can more easily understand what is going wrong.

Then the store must be corrupt.  ~/.guix-profile/manifest cannot be
empty, even you ran several ‘guix’ commands in parallel.

Could you run:

  guix gc --verify=contents
