I guess I'm still a little confused. Suppose that I want to update all
packages, on my system.  The ones owned by root, and the ones owned by
all other users.  Then I'd do this?

$ guix pull && guix package -u

$ logout

$ login DifferentUser

$ guix pull && guix package -u

 ...repeat for all other users...

$ su

# guix pull && guix package -u && guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm

Does that look right?
