What type of "update" have you performed ? – João Pinto Nov 23 '10 at 9:48

What kind of partition process did you adopted? guided or manual? – crncosta Nov 23 '10 at 15:12
For future readers: it's very unlikely that an update removed the home directory, unless you're using unsafe repositories which you've added manually. The most likely issue here is a failing disk. – Lekensteyn Jun 29 '11 at 16:37

First thing to do is poweroff your computer. Then boot with Ubuntu Rescue Remix to recover your data on an external drive. This link might help:
