OK, so I checked the manual again, and found out that I'm supposed to run `sudo 
-i guix pull`, not `sudo guix pull` or `guix pull`. I've was trying both of the 
latter two commands which would explain the unnecessary 
/var/guix/profiles/per-user/ben/current-guix* symlinks (due to `guix pull`) and 
/root/.config/guix/* symlinks (due to `sudo guix pull`). 
Running `sudo -i guix pull` it seems to work.
