I'm running a standalone GUIX system and have been updating it with
GUIX pull and upgrading packages.

I'd like to try running the Hurd instead of Libre-Linux but I don't
know how to do this.
I guess you read the first April joke post about Linux-libre being
replaced with the Hurd. The Hurd isn't ready to replace Linux-libre
yet, but you can learn and contribute or tell the others to make it

Here, the Hurd's website. It is outdated a bit:
And the more updated one (it is down in the time of writing this post):
The most up to date discussions:

Hurd lacks SMP (Simultaneous MultiProcessing), is 32-bit only and it
doesn't support modern hardware yet.

You can try Guix GNU/Hurd on a virtual machine (qemu).
If you're interested in it, I can give you instructions to set up a VM
with the Hurd.
