Hi Simen,

Can you check that your "guix" actually comes from
~/.config/guix/current/bin/guix (and *not* ~/.guix-profile or
~/.guix-home, it's very important)?

`type guix` should tell you what it is. If it doesn't agree with `which
guix` and the location found by which is correct, try `hash guix` (no
output), then from that terminal you should get the new guix that you
pulled (not other terminals, you'd need to reboot for that).

It's usually a mistake to install the guix package with something like
"guix install guix" or "guix upgrade guix", because the guix package
that guix knows is necessarily from the past, so you're instead
downgrading your guix command.

On the guix system, and I think what the binary installer does, the
guix pull profile should come first in $PATH, but maybe something went
wrong in your case, or you made some changes?
