What you've done is to roll back your Guix to the 4-month-old version of
Guix that the 'wip-libreoffice' branch was based on.

The proper way would be to use 'git' to rebase that branch on our
current master branch, and then use that.  "guix pull" can't do that.

That's probably because Hydra has long ago deleted the binaries from 4
months ago.
