no, I am not using a manifest and do things by hand all the time.

This is a plausible explanation.

I ended up running this command:

$ ./pre-inst-env guix package -r gnutls -i gnutls
guile: warning: failed to install locale
warning: failed to install locale: Invalid argument
guix package: warning: Consider running 'guix pull' followed by
'guix package -u' to get up-to-date packages and security updates.

The following packages will be removed:
   gnutls       3.5.13  
   gnutls       3.5.13  

The following package will be upgraded:
   gnutls       3.5.13 -> 3.5.13        

Then I ended up with only one listed.

Anyway, I do not think it did any harm, but it could indicate a bug somewhere
in the code.
