Can you post this in English please? If I understand correctly you want to backup your Ubuntu system and upgrade to 12.04.1? But you just have to apply updates as usual to your 12.04 system to get it... – RolandiXor Aug 24 '12 at 18:19

There is no need to backup or specially "upgrade" to 12.04.1 if you are already on 12.04.

Simply update as normal, or open a terminal and run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

Não há necessidade de fazer backup por causa do upgrade para a versão 12.04.1.

Basta atualizar o sistema normalmente, abrir um terminal e executar o comando sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.
