Hello Fredrik,

The Guile backtrace you sent shows that /etc/ssl already existed when
your system booted and was not a symlink.  This led the “activation
code” of GuixSD to fail:

The solution is to remove /etc/ssl (is it coming from another distro
previously installed on this device?).  You can boot a separate medium, 
mount the root partition, and “rm -rf /etc/ssl” from there.  Or you can,
at the boot REPL that you get after the backtrace, type something like:

  ,use (guix build utils)
  (delete-file-recursively "/etc/ssl")

Note that you might have similar issues with /etc/pam.d, for instance,
if there’s such a stale directory.
