That’s not correct.  This indicates that the GUIX_PROFILE variable is
not exported.

There shouldn’t be any “guix” package in ~/.guix-profile.

I’d replace this with:

    export GUIX_PROFILE=$HOME/.guix-profile
    source $GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile

This ensures that the variables won’t point to specific store items but
rather to the *current* generation (even when you upgrade).
