Here’s a fact: you don’t miss out on a promotion just because you were on vacation. If it was intended for you it would have been waiting for you when you got back.
OP, Except for very unusual conditions, nobody ever lost a promotion they were going to get by going on a planned vacation. You were probably misled as to the likelihood you were going to get the promotion. Sometimes managers lie, sometimes they imply things without actually promising it. Only trust things you get in writing for making important career plans - everything else can devolve down to BS. You now know your manager is misleading at best or dishonest at worst. Take that into account for your career plans. It’s very hard to work for a person like that. I know because I had a boss like that before.
