bug#42989: Subtle Typo in guix-daemon.service installed by guix-install.

You are right and the confusion is mine. The reason the error messages disappeared is that thanks to a "guix pull", a "guix upgrade", and a "guix install glibc-utf8-locales" on user "root" I now have the latest version of the utf8-locales, 2.31, installed at /var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile/lib/locale.

Sorry for the bother. However, judging by prior discussions not everyone understands that the build daemons rely in this way on the guix-profile of the root. It would help if the documentation pointed out this common misunderstanding and explicitly advised users on foreign distributions to pull and upgrade the root profile regularly.

Can you reply to the bug tracker?

In any case, "~root" is a different directory than "/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root", and the guix-profile directory is named differently in each location.

In my experience, the path as shown in your example is correct. The
directory is not a "hidden" directory in this location.
