      No. Among other things you appear to assume that
      gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2) = 1
      gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))= 1
      so you continue to ignore Jack's careful tuition:

      p=22021;Q=3003;
      print([gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2),gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))])
      [11011, 22021]

      and mine:

      p=-127;Q=13167;
      print([gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2),gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))])
      [63, 127]

      Wann wird man je verstehn?
