I haven't read the linked blog post, but I think the next step is to use
the Guix in /usr/local/bin to run 'guix pull' as your user.  That will
install the latest version of Guix in ~/.config/guix/current.

Afterwards, make sure ~/.config/guix/current/bin comes first in PATH,
then you should be able to use Guix normally.
