Doom Emacs has a tool `doom doctor' for diagnosing common errors. 
Perhaps there could be a `guix doctor' that would check for such things. 
`guix offload test' is already somewhat like that but for offloading, 
althought it could improve. Any bug report from a user where the 
solution is to tell them to fix their environment instead of changing 
guix could also have a check added to guix doctor. Also, we could 
collect knowledge on aspects of GNU/Linux that are unique to Guix that 
one often doesn't learn about on other distributions and include a page 
in the manual. for example I never had any use for sudo -E or sudo -i 
until I started using Guix.
