Bug Description

## Context

I recently made a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Release: 20.04
Codename: focal

## Objective

I finished a long-standing project to properly automate my backups. I designed my solution when I was much less experienced, and it was built from low-level building blocks rather than using a robust and supported solution. Following my old design was a mistake on my part.

## Feature request

Ubuntu should prompt on a fresh install to set up automatic backups using Déjà Dup. This is the default backups manager, but I was not aware that Ubuntu/GNOME/Déjà Dup had made this feature as easy to use as it had.

Adding this prompt would help all users of Ubuntu follow best practices around backups.
