It would be useful to know the exact error message, and to see your
configuration file if possible. You can connect to the installer over
SSH from another machine if that makes copying the error and config file

That seems a bit odd, as the guix-daemon is usually quite separate, and
doesn't often cause problems.

Upgrading might be possible, but if you wanted to do this, I think it
would be easier to generate [1] a updated installation image with the
newer version of the guix package on it. But first, it would be good to
check the error message and your configuration file.
