Failed to install org-roam: Package `compat-' is unavailable


My gitlab pipeline to build my org-roam based digital garden is failing with:

Failed to install org-roam: Package `compat-' is unavailable

Similar problem here:

If you look at, then is indeed not available.

Actually though, it's a few days later and now it's saying that is unavailable. And that one does appear to be on elpa. Hmm.

Oh OK, but if I look at my publish.el file, I'm not actually included elpa, I'm including melpa and org-elpa. Maybe compat moved from one to the other recently?

OK, so I added elpa to the list of available package archives:

(setq package-archives '(("melpa" . "")
                         ("elpa" . "")
                         ("org" . "")))

And that seems to have sorted it out. Not sure if compat moved, or org-roam started needed compat.
