Yes, you'll be able to get the 4.3 update without the TA partition. But, as everyone else here said, make sure you're on a stock ROM, with a locked bootloader.

Locked bootloader ----> You can use PC Companion or Flashtool to update your phone
Unlocked bootloader ------> Flashtool only
Also, don't try to update your phone via OTA while having your bootlader unlocked, because it will brick your device.

TA partition contains the working bravia engine (2) which gets lost if you unlock bootloader. If you had made a backup of the TA partition you could restore this and get the bravia engine back

My original Stock Rom had been flashed to CM 10, but now I have flashed it back to stock rom that I tried to search online from this site. Is it counted as original stock rom or not? My phone is unlocked bootloader, and I got ota update but cannot install, I don't know why; maybe it has been changed or maybe of unlock bootloader?
