I stumbled upon a typo leading to an unbound variable error after the
last step (patch attached; I let you apply it.)

Other than that, something I hadn’t realized earlier (sorry for being
foolish!): the installer actually stops after the user account selection
and does nothing more, right?  It doesn’t generate a config file nor
does it run ‘guix system init’, does it?

If this is correct, we should probably delay merging until after the
release as people may be confused when they realize the installer has no
effect.  WDYT?

Thanks, and apologies for not following closely enough so far!
