If you originally installed via a RPM, then there is no need to remove 
the old first, as the new rpm will locate any previous versions and 
remove them first anyway.

You might want to backup your templates, unless you have them located in 
your /home directory where they wouldn't be touched.  If they are within 
the Scribus installed directory, then yes, make a backup!

The links to the clipart should not be bothered, unless the clipart 
directory is moved to a different location.  As long as the links still 
point to the same location for your clipart, all should be working after 
the update.
