When I run package-install-selected-packages I see the following message:

1 packages are not available (the rest already installed)

But it doesn't say which package was not available.

All the packages in package-selected-packages appear to have been installed, but apparently I requested something that was not available.

How can I find out what it was?

    Manually? I guess you can just look in ~/.emacs.d/elpa/ and find out which of the packages you'd selected for installation is not present? I would also review *Messages* with C-h e, as there may be an explicit indication logged in there. – phils Nov 14 '18 at 10:41

    Probably worth filing a feature request to Emacs maintainers to make this message say which packages weren't available. – wvxvw Nov 16 '18 at 8:26
