Ah, forgot the mix phx.gen.release --ecto part :man_facepalming:. Thats why it cant find /bin/migrate.

Thx to jaeyson. You saved my day after running into the same problem and trying one deploy after another :sweat_smile:.

To give an additional info: until recently if someone creates a new phoenix project and starts fly launch the release files were built as expected. Now, it seems that if you just use fly launch the ecto part release files (rel/overlays/bin/migrate and rel/overlays/bin/migrate.bat) are not built by default and therefore missing.

So, as jaeyson wrote, run mix phx.gen.release --ecto before running fly launch.

Phoenix 1.6.7 would not find ecto in some cases, causing phx.gen.release not to include it. Phoenix 1.6.8 has been released which fixes this. Thanks!
