Do virtual machines on the host server get corrupted that often which means a VPS user can't logon to their VPS?

My apologies for my questions as I'm a newbie with regards to web hosting via a VPS. Just wanted to ask when using a VPS which relies on a Virtual Machine (VM) on the host server, do these VMs get corrupted that often i.e., once a week, once a month, once every 6 months or once every 2-3 years? Apart from VMs getting corrupted (which means I would have to ask the VPS provider's tech support to use and restore our "VPS backup") what are some other problems a VPS user may get quite often that means they either can't logon to their VPS or have to rely on their "VPS backup" to get up and running again? Any comments or guidance would be really appreciated.

This does not depends only on the host server but that happen if the disk/ram/psu/gpu etc get corrupted or die. Nowadays most ISP/Hosts do have backups in which they can restore your VPS. I am not aware of any other issues, there might be network issues from time to time and or maintenance from the HOST side. Btw, it is recommended that you have your own backups aswell.

Everything, of course, depends on the choice of hypervisor and the state of the host server.

If the host server is in good condition, all preventive maintenance has been carried out, and a proven system is selected as the hypervisor, for example the same ProxMox, then such problems with virtual machines practically do not happen.
