API for package management, through D-Bus

PackageKit provides a way of performing package management tasks, e.g. updating, removing and installing software. Through supporting many backends, PackageKit can perform these tasks using the appropriate package manager for the current system.


Install the latest version of packagekit as follows:

guix install packagekit

Or install a particular version:

guix install packagekit@1.2.5

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
