I think your issue is that bash keeps a cache of binary locations. You can try 
in a new terminal, or after running "hash unison" (no output if all goes well). 
Then you should be able to run the unison from apt.

You should remove /gnu, /var/guix, ~/.guix-profile and ~/.config/guix. Possibly 
some symlinks from /usr/local too.
