But you should also update as patches almost always contain bug fixes. Games often have glitches or bugs that could prevent you from playing or saving as you should be able to, so patches are crucial in those cases. I think updating your game via patches is safe using kmeaw, unless your game's eboot.bin has been pre-patched before. But since most games (99%) play with their untouched eboot.bin files, updating them should not change how they work on kmeaw. In any case, you should keep a backup of your game on a separate hard drive, just in case.
