Hmm, this should never leave you with an uncompiled Guix.  Can you tell
us more about the environment in which this happens?  (e.g. the output
of “env” will be fine.)

When using “guix pull” it will install into the current user’s
~/.config/guix/current/.  Are you only using Guix as the root user?

No.  You should never run “guix package -i guix” because it necessarily
installs an *older* version of Guix than the version you use to install
