As mentioned on the list, I recently had the same problem: How to uninstall Guix (completely) and then reinstall it?

What helped me in the end eas the following Arch wiki entry:

(Adapt this to what the commands and locations look like on your OS.)

However, out of the box reinstalling Guix will not work 100% after this. You also need to restart the guix daemon, otherwise the socket might not exist, which was one problem I faced, when I did this. After restarting the daemon, I was able to reinstall Guix without even restarting my machine or logging out and back in or any such things.

Hello Pierre-Henry,

(Tu peux aussi t?exprimer en fran?ais si tu pr?f?res.)

I've then tried to re-install guix by:
  removing /gnu
  removing /var/guix
To be complete, you?d also need to remove /etc/guix.  However, it
shouldn?t be a problem to leave it.

  executing the install script given here:

It does not work ? How to solve these issues?
Can you explain what does not work?  Please provide the command that you
run, the output that you got, and explain what you were expecting.

Thank you,
