Operation Meridian "Story" Mode Difficulty Problem

Is Operation Meridian "Story" mode supposed to be so hard?

I can not get past the first boss (R10-X6) which has 5.8 million HP and has 2 gold adds (252k HP each) and 3 standard adds (114k HP each). To put it into perspective the Rank 10 Major Anri which is the only companion I can bring in tank mode only has 207k HP fully buffed. In fact, she has never lasted more than 28 seconds in the boss fight.

If I put her into healer mode and I try to tank it in my sorcerer I get killed in under a minute even after using all the defensive CDs and constant self-healing.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there some mechanic that I am missing? It was already a pain getting to the first boss in the first place because Major Anri dies or has less than 20% HP remaining every pull even though I DPS them all down in under a minute.

I am currently an ilvl 299 Sith Sorcerer. Any help would be appreciated. I tried to ask on the official Discord but it seems to be inactive.

EDIT: Turns out the storyline automatically put me in the Master Mode version of the FP for some reason (seen by the quest log). Don't know why. I was automatically put into the FP after the cutscene from the last mission. I removed the Master Mode quest and now I can't even get into the FP. The door on the White Nova is now yellow instead of purple. I am also not eligible to use the terminal next to the door to try to pick up the story mode version of the FP.

If you're locked to Major Anri as companion you still have to do the solo-story. What is your current purple mission saying? Maybe you need to speak with the npcs that send you to Meridian again.

The purple mission just tells me to complete the flashpoint "Operation Meridian" and points me towards the White Nova ship. However, the entrance is no longer purple and is yellow and nothing happens when I try to run through it. Clicking the Operation Meridian terminal just says that I am not eligible for the conversation.

I am also unable to reset or abandon the purple mission.

Abandon all the meridian flashpoint quests except the purple one and try the terminal again.

I did. I only had that Master Mode Operation Meridian quest and the purple one when I left the FP and reset the phase.

Not sure if you're saying yes and no.

When you're sent to X flashpoint to do something for the story you don't generally click the terminal.

There is usually an NPC in a phased room which is near the flashpoint door that starts it.

I think you need to walk past that phased room to get to the meridian fp after the quick travel to white nova.

I wasn't really sent there. The story automatically teleported me into the FP after the story cutscene with Darth Malgus (I think, don't remember the exact NPC).

I went back to the White Nova ship to the purple mission marker but the phased room is yellow and not purple anymore. When running into the phased room nothing happens for me and I just keep running up against the entrance.

can you enter the room directly in front of the elevator when you get to the meridian staging deck? i think that's where the quest giving npcs are.
