I run Arch Linux + GNU Guix (as a package manager)
and it's a nice experience.  I use GNU Guix as my
primary package manager.  I'd recommend you give
it a try ;)

Worth mentioning that GNU Guix provides facilities
for bundling packages using "guix pack".  You
could provide "tar.gz" files, or even bundle
things inside docker/squashfs containers for easy
distribution without requiring your end-user to
download anything extra. For more read:
