Can you try rolling back to the generation that worked, to verify that
it's not something in your environment that has changed?  Maybe also try
to temporarily move away the ".kodi" folder in the users home directory.

I'm currently testing the latest git snapshot of Kodi regardless, the
alpha version in Guix is pretty old already.  Originally Kodi 18 was
slated for July, but the release was pushed back to January[0], so the
version in Guix is probably pretty buggy.
