Sorry pastebin is not tor friendly, I couldn't look at it.

For the freezing part, could it be that you have relatively low free ram (<2GB) 
and no swap? Or maybe /tmp is mounted as a tmpfs and for some reason it takes a 
lot of space?

You might need to use substitutes when runnning guix pull. I don't have that 
much ram either on some computers, so I always take a look at 
https://ci.guix.gnu.org/jobset/guix-modular-master and choose the latest commit 
that was built for my architeeture. Then eg. guix pull --commit=c987b72

This will allow guix to download substitutes for guix pull instead of building 
locally, which doesn't require any ram usage.
