Can you also share the output of the following commands?

  sudo parted -l

This will tell us how your disks, partitions, and LUKS volume are
configured.  Hopefully that will make it easier to see why your
configuration isn't working.  If you don't have those programs
available, you can install them with:

  guix package -i util-linux parted

The "guix" command is a thin wrapper that quickly delegates to whatever
you've installed in ~/.config/guix/latest.  This is by design; it is how
we currently make it possible for multiple users to maintain separate
installations of Guix simultaneously.  For a more detailed description
of how this works, you might find this email thread helpful:
