I have accepted that I have somehow gotten myself into a dark corner of
Guix! I was expecting there to be a Guix command that would basically
get any package back into a good state. I was kind of surprised that
`guix build --check` or `guix build --repair` didn't help me out. My
expectation was that maybe this would check the hash of the store with
upstream and rebuild or redownload a substitute.

One interesting point might be that there are no `.go` files. I would
argue Guile's error message here could use some care, but even a better
error message won't get me to a better spot :)

Thanks again for the time, Ricardo.
