Hi,I have a profile with address@hidden in it, and running 'guix package -u' updates it to address@hidden, which isn't what I want. I cannot run 'guix package -i address@hidden -u' because then it tries to install both address@hidden and address@hidden, which conflicts.
I can workaround this using 'guix package -u; guix package -i address@hidden'. That isn't ideal (wasteful downloading of substitute, extra entries in the generations list, etc), but is workable for me, making this a low priority bug for me.
Ideally, I would expect that because I specified address@hidden first, guix should not try to install address@hidden However, this difficult because IIUC the packages which were specified to be included are not stored anywhere, and I suppose it would entail changes to the manifest format also. So, how to handle this?
