Thank you for fixing this bug!

I switched to the core-updates branch, but I am not sure if I did it
correctly.  First I did

    guix pull --branch=core-updates

which seemed to work fine as there is a new current-guix link.  Then I

    guix package -i texlive-latex-base -u

which did not succeed:

       readline     8.0 → 8.0.1     
       pinentry-gtk2        1.1.0 → 1.1.0   
       claws-mail   3.17.4 → 3.17.4 
       The following package will be installed:
       texlive-latex-base 51265   
       substitute: updating substitutes from ''... 
162.2% guix package: error: got unexpected path 
`/gnu/store/dwynpdsqpw24q1rkia7j4ifscc1ph2wg-libfontenc-1.1.4.tar.bz2' from 

(sorry for mangling of the lines; pasted text should never be touched,
it's really Claws Mail's fault).  Whereas that did not work, I was able
to only install texlive-latex-base, but compilation of a document gives:

    $ lualatex test
    This is LuaTeX, Version 1.07.0 (TeX Live 2018) 
     restricted system commands enabled.
    (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
    $ latex test
    This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.19 (TeX Live 2018) (preloaded 
     restricted \write18 enabled.
    ---! /home/marco/.guix-profile/share/texmf-dist/web2c/latex.fmt made by 
different executable version
    (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

So what my actual question here probably is: How do I make sure things
are consistent when switching branch?
