Guix does not comply with FHS [1].  So there is no /bin/bash and
/bin/rm.  We do not support third-party binary packages.  Please do not
install them on Guix system.  These packages will not work normally on
Guix.  (Yes.  There are dirty tricks to make them work.  But we do not
recommend them.)

PrivateInternetAccess provides OpenVPN access [2].  Please try the free
OpenVPN package from Guix: `guix package -i openvpn`.

Guix is very different from traditional GNU/Linux distros.  Have fun
with Guix!  And feel free to ask questions here.
