Putting this back on the list as I mistakenly only hit reply in my last mail. I
hope this okay.

So as I'm running Guix 20170414.08 I don't believe I have a recent enough
version for option 1. In any case, option 2 is still unsuccessful for
me too though
I didn't record the output on this occasion. I suspect at this point I
did something wrong
in my use of Guix. Is there a way to cleanly remove and re-install
Guix. I don't mind as I
only have a handful of packages installed. I raised this query on a
separate thread as well
so apologies for the noise particularly if this is not best practice
on a mailing list.

Thanks as always for your time.
