List Attachments in Approval Tasks

What is going on with attachments lately? I have users reporting that attachments in approval tasks have stopped working. The file appears to be attached to the message, but will not open. Here are the errors we get now:

I am aware of the issue where you have to use "content" instead of "ContentBytes" when appending an array variable for the attachments (if they are to be attached to an Approval task). My Flow was set up that way, the Peek Code reveals no errors, and the Outputs of my tests all definitely have content. So what has gone wrong? 

I tried setting it back to ContentBytes but that did not work at all. Has anyone figured this out? If you see something wrong with this, please let me know. I appreciate all your help!
