I'm not certain whether it came from ELPA or MELPA (to be honest, I'm not sure how those are different).  In the *Packages* buffer, I see

       ivy                20190809.1551 dependency            Incremental Vertical completYon

and M-x find-library RET ivy RET shows me the file ~/.emacs.d/elpa/ivy-20190809.1551/ivy.el , if that helps any.

[I've readded the bug list to the mail headers, please try to keep it

Given that you're reporting this here I assume you installed ivy from
GNU ELPA, but I can't reproduce your problem with that version (0.12.0)
or the one from MELPA, so at the very least some more information seems
necessary from your side.

I've now also added the package author to the Cc header (there's also
the issue tracker at <https://github.com/abo-abo/swiper/issues>.)
