If you get 404 responses during `guix pull`, please let us know, since
--fallback is not yet implemented for `guix pull`.

For other commands that return 404 from our servers, you can either use
--fallback (build from source) and wait ~5 minutes, which is about how
long it takes for the mirror to populate itself after the first request
