I have read this

As described in blog, package definitions have tight coupling with package manager version.

Because of this I can install older version Icecat-62 only from guix-0.15.0, but cannot install it from guix-0.16.0, cause guix-0.16.0 has only one package definition of Icecat-63:

$ guix package --show=icecat
name: icecat
version: 60.3.0-gnu1

The guix-0.15.0 has Icecat-62:

$ /gnu/store/mfvjx6s8knbh8xn5gsxa92aqisg7v1dp-profile/bin/guix package --show=icecat
name: icecat
version: 60.2.0-gnu1

I have 2 question:
- Why older version of guix can work with guix-daemon newer version? Can there be any conflicts? How does it work exactly?

The second question concerns guix-daemon in my system.  I've discovered I still have guix-daemon-0.15.0 working process despite I've made `guix pull` from root and non-root user and using guix-0.16.0:

# ps -ef | grep guix-daemon

# guix package --show=guix

- Why guix-daemon is still 0.15.0 while as root user has guix-0.16.0? How to upgrade it? Do I need something like `guix system upgrade`? - Manual has no such option.
