This is because the result of running guix pull is a profile available

So you may need to make sure it is at the beginning of your search path.

Thanks, but the plain user `guix pull` works fine and ~/.config/guix/current is up-to-date.


I note that this page doesn't contain "sudo" at all and "root" only once, in "For instance, when user root runs guix pull, this has no effect on the version of Guix that user alice sees, and vice versa.".

I tried all of these, each time with

sudo guix pull
sudo -i guix pull
sudo -E
   guix pull

None of these changed what /usr/local/bin/guix and/or
/root/.guix-profile/bin/guix are pointing to.

I mixed -i and -E up, it was of course

sudo -E guix pull
sudo -i
  guix pull

That is, first attempt with -E, same as --preserve-env, then sudo -i to log into root before `guix pull`.
