Proxmox Ubuntu VM Hangs at load screen

I am re posting this as I hope to provide clarity to my issue.

Randomly, my Ubuntu VM (Plex server) just hangs at the Ubuntu page.

When I run smartctl -a on the drive with the VM, I get this.

I am able to view the drive when I try to put a Ubuntu usb boot drive in and hit the "try" version. I seem to be able to access the files just fine. When I look at gparted, I get this:
View attachment 56218

I am not sure how to proceed. Any advice?
