It’s expected.  It’s not possible to travel so far back.  The zero for
time-traveling is the introduction of “inferiors” mechanism around 2019.

Well, since the question is recurrent, I agree that:

 1. the manual needs to be improved;
 2. the command “guix time-machine” should raise a gentle error when the
    specification is unreachable.
