Tackar! Completely missed that option when I checked --help. But it
looks like that option doesn't do anything for me. Still got the same
error message.

Me neither. I ended up just installing guix-0.15 instead.  Did a guix
pull to --branch=version-0.16.0 (I hope that is equivalent). And
currently waiting for it to finish reconfigure.

Got carried away with just playing around with the system, after I
installed 0.15. Really nice system I must say. Only crucial package I'm
missing is polybar. At the moment, having a hard time keeping track of my
windows in i3 :). But I figured that will be a good introduction in packaging
stuff for guix.

Anyway, thanks for the help again!
