No.  Guix is not like most distros where you have to be root to update
the package list, and where root's package list is used by all other

In the Guix model, each user has their own version of Guix and its
package list.  When a user runs "guix pull", it only updates Guix for
that particular user, by changing the symlink ~/.config/guix/latest.

If root runs "guix pull", it only updates the package list for root, by
changing the symlink ~root/.config/guix/latest.
