Are you sure Guix is incorrect?

 $ df -i / /gnu/store

If you're (almost) out of inodes on either, you'll have to delete some files.

In which case you can thank Unix for -ENOSPC meaning ‘you're out of something; I won't tell you what’, but perhaps Guix could work around its flaws by doing our own stat() and displaying a hint. We already warn about low storage space. It makes sense to do the same about inodes.

Kind regards,
