Re-source the profile seems enough. :-)

Yeah! :-)
Feel free to give a try and report on help-guix or guix-devel or #guix
your progress or you are stuck.

I am using emacs@26.3, for comparison.
And Guix 2c8305d14 which is one month older.

I am using  emacs-lua-mode@20191204-1.1f596a9 and I do not have such
issue.  But I remember something similar and it was coming from
init.el file; at the time my Emacs packages was loaded with
'use-package' and now they are loaded with 'with-eval-after-load'.
Well, I do not remember exactly, sorry.

Thank you for the report.  As you can see with the Data Service, it
seems that a regression has been introduced.

The log corresponding is:

and as you have noticed, the test 'ts-update' fails.

Hum? The regression is probably introduced by commit 4ef89d884.

I am using it and I not see what you are seeing.  But I am not using
an older Guix than b2d35dd9a.
