[Gllug] backing up an Ubuntu system.

I was just wondering if someone could help/advise on backup up an 
Ubuntu/Linux system?

I would like to be able to do two things. Backup the system and data 
separately. As an example before any updates are applied to the system I 
would like to secure the system before applying. So, that I can restore 
if there any problems. I would also like to backup my own personal data 
on a regular basis.

There seems to be options in the Ubuntu software repository but it does 
not really clarify for me what I should be backing up (in the case of 
the system) or how best to do this.
