This is apt-get complaining: it wants first an operation
("install", "remove", etc. -- see apt-get's manual page
for the full list)

You read this as "install 'GNU guix'" -- the package name
you gave has a space, apt-get tries to interpret the first
part as the operation ("GNU") and fails.

And so on. The Debian package you are looking for is called
simply "guix", so try this:

  apt-get install guix

That said, if you are new to apt, I'd look into "apt", which
might be a friendlier front-end to the package manager.
