This should be:

sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm

Also, the manual recommends the following:

"Note: It is highly recommended to run guix pull once before you run guix 
system reconfigure for the first time (see Invoking guix pull). Failing to do 
that you would see an older version of Guix once reconfigure has completed."
