@ekaitz_zarraga @mgdelacroix Also, if you don’t want that to happen, you can check that substitutes are available before updating with the guix weather command ! It can even tell you which packages are missing and the number of pending builds so that you can decide to still proceed if you think you can build faster locally than wait for the substitute to be available.
@alice thanks for the detailed explanation! I think I can get enough info to get a rough idea on how big of a build task it would be for my small machine to update all the packages just knowing how many and which ones have not a substitute available. I still need to learn more about the whole system as I was using a home definition to list the packages, and it doesn't seem to play well with the manifest format that the weather command expects
