This is the first time I’m hearing of a problem like that.  Guix cannot
delete /var/guix.  It needs what’s in there, most importantly the
database that tells the daemon what items in /gnu/store are valid and
which of them are not.  Without that database everything in /gnu/store
is invalid.

There is no way to recover from this other than reinstallation of Guix.
