You might as you never know when doing updates. Its best to backup before updating to be for sure, in any case or OS really.

well, ok...i'm answering:

you know... if you are planning well... and not a service or module is getting you a problem...

...well then ... there wouldn't be a need of a backup..cause you've got your files, yet...

but what if......
...the kernel makes problem
...you're gonna mount vfat with a wrong parameter that you'll give to mount...? you're whole data would be corrupted...

so....you would better backup your data
