This dependency has been added to Guix since 0.15.0, so the old
guix currently on you profile has now way to know that this is needed.

Now it is packaged, but it was not when the release was made.

You should use guix pull to update your guix, and have the latest
package definitions
available. You might have to do it twice, as guix pull has changed
since the release.
After that the command as you wrote it should succeed.

No problem, I'm not a native speaker either, and you English is not bad at all.

You can also send to help-guix in several other languages, but it
might take more
time to get answer then. See for the list
of languages.
