    ============Missing/Corrupted Content Summary================
    Corrupted or Missing Rpm: 1000/173142
    Corrupted or missing content has been detected, you can examine the list of content in /tmp/unmigratable_content-20220109-11817-1oil4a6 and take action by either:
    1. Performing a 'Verify Checksum' sync under Advanced Sync Options, let it complete, and re-running the migration
    2. Deleting/disabling the affected repositories and running orphan cleanup (foreman-rake katello:delete_orphaned_content) and re-running the migration
    3. Manually correcting files on the filesystem in /var/lib/pulp/content/ and re-running the migration
    4. Mark currently corrupted or missing content as skipped (foreman-rake katello:approve_corrupted_migration_content).  This will skip migration of missing or corrupted content.
