To identify the source of the repository of packages: From "With multiple repositories enabled, the package-list-packages view contains an "Archive" column that is populated for available (uninstalled) packages, e.g.:"

Package            Version      Status     Archive    Description
ace-window         0.5.0        available  melpa-s... Quickly switch windows using `ace-jump-mode'.

"Note: The repository has had significant availability problems for years (and it seems to be down since 2021), so package users/authors may wish to look at ELPA, NonGNU ELPA and MELPA in addition to (or instead of) Marmalade." -
