I vote for software pre-installed to do this and for update manager UI able to do set point and restore back.
I beleive it is quite critical to have such option in supported discribution. Everyone knows update may be pain thus why don't we make end user free of it? I believe it should be compltex restore functionality starting from the live cd, boot menu, restore point soft and update manager.
I know there is a way to do this manually but why we are asking end user to read toons on unnessesary documentation instead of just providing simple button somewhere in menu?
Follow Alexio's advice
Doable with btrfs or ext4 snapshot feature.
Maybe one of the tools suggested by @Alexio could be added to the default Mint software selection
Nice to have
You can use Back In Time, FlyBack or TimeValut.
I agree 1000%. A quick restore point would be excellent!
