Avid console error messages are no joke.
I was on a Profile for an indoor arena show and I was getting "CPU over-temp" messages during load in. We're used to outdoor Miami weather and we handle it fine, an A/C arena gave me some concern.
I opened the FOH rack and found a big rubber band "securing" the sticks of RAM in place had snapped and gotten jammed in the CPU fan. Not a great design.
I've had a massive critical show-stopping error on a Midas Pro desk, but it actually presented similar to the "Bloop!" sound, but for a solid 4-5 seconds. I'd argue that's much worse than a cut in audio.
If it's true that they had received this error for the past few days and ignored it, then this deserves every bit of attention they got because that's a pretty big no-no.
