If you are the only user on your computer, you probably don't need Guix
to be installed at all for the 'root' user, and can just make sure
/etc/systemd/system/guix-daemon.service points to
/home/user/.config/guix/current/bin/guix-daemon.  It will be updated
when you will 'guix pull' as a normal user, to the last guix package,
and hopefully, later, to the guix that was pulled.
