ci.guix.gnu.org provides you with binaries, so that you don’t have to
build everything from source.  By default Guix will fetch from
ci.guix.gnu.org, but you don’t have to download anything from
ci.guix.gnu.org if you don’t want to.

You can download from any other machine that runs “guix publish” or
contact the upstream servers directly to fetch source code and build
everything locally.

It's the build farm. Guix checks for the availability of substitutes, so you don't have to spend hours building something that was already built.

Of course you can disable substitutes (--no-substitutes) or specify another substitute server if you wish (--substitute-urls).

HTH!

You just need to be connected to the internet.  Guix will do the rest.


guix pull

guix pull -u # will update all of your packages in your user profile

sudo guix system reconfigure config.scm # will update your system
