Installing a package with Guix shows a normal speed, while invoking 
`guix pull` does not. Is it normal, or due to my own environment?

Hello.

It's totally normal and expected, and if Guix wasn't upgraded in a
while (say, for example a month) it'll take even longer time. The
reason being that it has to upgrade the Guix toolset and then fetch new
commits directly from git repos and build a database with said commits,
these databases contain all information required to replicate your
current installed setup, building this database is the slow part of
running pull.

Thanks for explanation.
So can I think of *guix pull* as an analogue to *nix flake update* or 
*nix channel --update*, but with *nix-index* and *​nix-env --upgrade 
--attr nixpkgs.nix* or *nix profile upgrade nix* in addition?
