    The root partition "/" (where operating system and all programs are installed) should be a XFS or BTRFS file system. The root partition is not really big, so a full backup and restore is not a big time consuming job:

    XFS => xfsdump/xfsrestore:

    BTRFS => System Recovery and Snapshot Management with Snapper

    Or use a dedicated vm snapshot for the root partition. Big updates should be tested on a test server before deliver to a production server...
