I suspected that Guix installed it to a different user profile somehow,
since you did not get any errors apart from the missing directory (if I
read the bug report correctly).
Does 'guix install hello' work?
Same problem there.
But thank you for your hypothesis above! I tried a different line with ls -lLR and grep and then discovered that the links *are* indeed installed in a different profile.
This led me to find my problem: For some reason, my ~root/.guix-profile was pointing to the current-guix profile rather than the guix-profile.
It could have been me who did that. :(
Anyway, problem solved! This was not a guix bug.
