Minecraft suddenly crashing when opening container

I have been playing Minecraft on my HP Pavillion for over 2 years and suddenly the other day it started crashing. When I went through the logs, I found an error that when I search it on google is said to be a ‘video driver’ issue. Has something changed recently in either the openGL or Radeon drivers?

Error from launcher logs:
