Can I just install a new version of Veracrypt over an older one with an encrypted system, or should I de-encrypt it first.

Per the FAQ, you can usually upgrade without decrypting the OS. The release notes would tell you if decrypting must be performed.

With all VeraCrypt versions through 1.12, you can merely upgrade and you will be prompted to reboot your system after the upgrade. :-)
