Regression is very difficult which is why it is not more common. You can remove a misbehaving application in Windows more easily because it has a central registry that grows in size and it has multiple instances of libraries. This is handy in some cases but inefficient and problematic, as any user who has had a registry get destroyed can tell you.
Linux has no registry and library files are reused and must match giving the infamous expression, dependency error. If things get out of sync your computer can become unstable or malfunction. Mostly this is temporary until everything is aligned. Many users seldom to never reboot. Some Linux boxes run for years without rebooting. There is no real need if you choose to update infrequently and can be patient should things go awry.
This has been on the wish list of users for a long time.
We feel your pain, but it is all part of the learning curve.

A disk image prior to the update upgrade service pack, patch might be considered?-----Original Message-----I am surprised to find that there is not a simple way to retreat from a system change but the main purpose of this system is my learning Lab.

I will slowly & cautiously proceed.
