You seem to have arrived at the following conclusion:

Proposition 1: If N is an odd perfect number,
then bigomega(N) cannot be even.

That is indeed true and is a trivial consequence of
this stronger result, from Euler:

Proposition 2: If N is an odd perfect number,
then there exists a prime p = 1 mod 4 and an
exponent e = 1 mod 4 such that N/p^e is a square.

I remark that there is now a proof tree claimed for the following.

Proposition 3: If N is an odd perfect number, then
(a) N > 10^1500,
(b) bigomega(N) > 100,
(c) the largest prime power dividing N exceeds 10^62.

I think you have misunderstood the sigma() function.  In Pari-GP, sigma(x) is the sum of the divisors of x.  So sigma(9) = 1+3+9 = 13.

The puzzle is: Find a pair of odd integers (N,m) with m|N,
sigma(N/m)*(1+m) = 2*N, and bigomega(m) = 1.

The proposed solution, N=45, m=5 doesn't work, since
sigma(45/5)*(1+5) = sigma(9)*6 = 13*6 = 78, which is not 2*N=2*45=90.
