Hello,
i had updated my unpatched switch from 4.1 to 6.1 with ChoiDuJour, i wonder if i can still do an official system update to 8.1 ?

i mean you could, ignoring the chance to have your console banned by connecting to nintendo servers.
but why not just use choidujour again to do it?

In the unlikely event that your NAND is clean, yes, you can update to 8.1.0 from the system settings.

In the likely event that your NAND is dirty, you should update to 8.1.0 using ChoiDujourNX. If your NAND is dirty, you should also keep your Switch offline (or install 90DNS and/or Incognito).

Like Lacius above stated, if your NAND is likely clean then you can update through your system settings but then your fuses could burn which it's fine if you don't mind.
If your NAND has any possible traces of homebrew activity but is not banned yet then refrain from connecting online and update through ChoiDujourNX instead.
A NAND backup should be made in case anything goes wrong.
