mdrpi is an undeclared prefix

Setting up a new on-prem SP, when grabbing the IDP metadata file from 
IdP server's /idp/pub/ folder, the SP fetch mechanism throws this error:

“Error importing metadata from <path to xml file>: ‘mdrpi’ is an 
undeclared prefix. Line 3, position 6.

Looking at our metadata fine in the /idp/pub folder I see the following 
mdrpi line:

<mdrpi:RegistrationInfo registrationAuthority=""/>

I found online one that looks like this:


Is our mdrpi line missing information or am I down the wrong rabbit 
trail on this error?
