is there a possibility to run a guix pull for root and for the user
together, in order not to do it twice, because it needs quite a long
time, compared to other Linux distros, where updating takes only some
minutes. (Debian based distros, Manjaro, Endeavour OS and so on).
If you do a guix pull, in my case I can´t do it at the end of my work,
because I would have to wait for finishing more than 30 minutes.
Is it not better to run a guix pull also regularly for root, in order
that root has also updated versions...
In my understanding (as a layman) it would leave root behind and leads
may be to inconsistency's in the guix system.

What should be the procedure?
As each user that you wish to update, do `guix pull` to update Guix and
the list of available packages and services, and then do `guix upgrade`
to actually upgrade your packages. If you use Guix System, you upgrade
the system with `guix system reconfigure`.
Note however that
sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm
uses the guix of the user who is running sudo.
It is therefore possible to never use root’s guix .
