And then there is the strange issue, that I cannot install font packages:

`guix package -i font-fira-code font-fire-mono font-fire-sans`


`guix package: error: font-fire-mono: unknown package`

This is just a typo.  Correct it and try again ;-)

Is my Guix installation buggy? I never did anything weird to it, only
ever used the Guix CLI commands to interact with it.

No. It was a deliberate decision to make ‘guix search’/‘guix package -s’ show only the ‘top’ result when stdout is a TTY. I don't like it either. The argument was that packages are sorted with the most relevant one at the top, which would scroll out of view.

I *still* think we should either do nothing, or call $PAGER automatically when stdout is a TTY.

Kind regards,
