I have an EC2 instance what I can not repair. I was trying to make an upgrade but everything fails. Would be possible to reinstall an amazon ec2 instance running on Ubuntu server?

You could terminiate your existing instance and create a brand new one.
But would be good to know if is possible to backup my new micro instance
You can create a snapshot of any instance type by right clicking it and selecting "Create Image (EBS AMI)".
Alternatively you can use the command line tools, ie "ec2-create-snapshot"
After creating a snapshot, or AMI (Amazon Machine Image) you can launch new instances based off this image (this would essentially be restoring the backup).
This might help as it takes you through the steps in detail: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/datacenter/how-to-create-a-new-ami-from-a-snapshot-and-launch-a-new-vm/5349
