From what I can tell, on every platform, the client uses the data directory over the update directory. Thats what caused this.

what else can i do?
Yipe, that was a close one! Did you notice you just almost cleaned out your whole home directory? If there were any files in your home (~), then you will find those in the "backup" directory now. You should really be more careful with pasting commands into your terminal, and make sure you know what they do and to check whether they succeed (the cd command didn't, so the cp and rm commands were run in the wrong directory).
