I'm not sure this is the best advice; other installations of guix should
not interfere with the pulled "guix" command as long as your PATH is set
up correctly. If PATH is not set up correctly, other things could be
wrong too...

There are cases where it may be fine to remove, but I don't think it is
good generalized troubleshooting advice, as it may hide other problems
with the installation.

By removing it a packaged or binary installation of guix from the
system, you also prevent other users on the same system from running
guix pull for themselves... or at least make it non-obvious or
otherwise more difficult than it needs to be.

live well,
