Looking for an explanation for having user and root profile guix, since
you seem to be unaware of how that works and I can't be sure of my own
understanding, I found something related:

Thing is, I did
`ln -s /var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile/bin/guix
during installation and that symlink is still intact. Yet, `guix pull`
and `sudo guix pull` are markedly different.
I see, then I will try to go back to my VM snapshot before I first made a guix pull when trying commands  - then I don't understand why the first time it worked for me - and make the symlink, because I need to have it working, and I would like to have it for my user - yes my user can run sudo, but that's not the point - :(
