The "quick start" section is just a quick example, assuming that you
just created the repository and that you're the only one using it.
The instructions you're referring are just a demonstration.

If you read the actual tutorial (chapter 3), then yes, it always
recommends updating first -- talks about resolving conflicts, etc.
That's way too much detail for a quick-start.
