is there a possibility to run a guix pull for root and for the user together, in order not to do it twice, because it needs quite a long time, compared to other Linux distros, where updating takes only some minutes. (Debian based distros, Manjaro, Endeavour OS and so on).

If you do a guix pull, in my case I can´t do it at the end of my work, because I would have to wait for finishing more than 30 minutes.

Is it not better to run a guix pull also regularly for root, in order that root has also updated versions...

In my understanding (as a layman) it would leave root behind and leads may be to inconsistency's in the guix system.

What should be the procedure?
As each user that you wish to update, do `guix pull` to update Guix and
the list of available packages and services, and then do `guix upgrade`
to actually upgrade your packages. If you use Guix System, you upgrade
the system with `guix system reconfigure`.

Note however that

sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm

uses the guix of the user who is running sudo.


It is therefore possible to never use root’s guix .
