Can you help us by clarifying exactly what is wrong?

In general, using sudo without either the --preserve-env or --login
options is not recommended, because it won't do what you want in any
case where environment variables are involved.

/usr/local/bin/guix and /root/.guix-profile/bin/guix keep pointing to the original guix installation.

I tried all of these, each time with

sudo guix pull
sudo -i guix pull
sudo -E
  guix pull

None of these changed what /usr/local/bin/guix and/or /root/.guix-profile/bin/guix are pointing to.
