In Emacs 24.5.1, after updating to the latest Org mode in ELPA
(8.3.1-16-gf6aa53-elpa), org-publish results in the error

"org-check-agenda-file: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil"

on a project that used to publish without errors using the latest Org 8.2.

Here is the part of a backtrace of the error (using M-x
toggle-debug-on-error) that I believe is relevant

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)

    call-interactively(org-publish record nil)
  command-execute(org-publish record)
  execute-extended-command(nil "org-publish")

I had to remove the arguments of byte-code() because they contained
special characters that couldn't be pasted in email.

Searching for this error, the only instance I could find was at


reporting a the same error message, but the solution suggested there
is already implemented in 8.3 as a fix and is not applicable in this

The relevant part of org.el is

(defun org-check-agenda-file (file)
  "Make sure FILE exists.  If not, ask user what to do."
  (when (not (file-exists-p file))
    (message "Non-existent agenda file %s.  [R]emove from list or [A]bort?"
             (abbreviate-file-name file))
    (let ((r (downcase (read-char-exclusive))))
       ((equal r ?r)
        (org-remove-file file)
        (throw 'nextfile t))
       (t (user-error "Abort"))))))

How can I solve this problem?
