Publisher moved from spot inks and CMYK, as of the 2013 release. It is limited to RGB garbage. GIGO!  Even if a conversion to Affinity Publisher was offered, you'd need to correct all the linked/embedded assets and color. If you have legacy MS Publisher documents, it is best to maintain a pre-2013 installation or start from scratch with a program like Affinity Publisher.

Because InDesign is capable of everything professionals need.

Microsoft Publisher is more or less a toy.
