UPS will be earthed via the mains, so if that has an issue, so will the UPS.
UPS is their as yo know to provide mergency power and to smooth out the power fluctuations coming in off the mains.

As das_stig stated your main panel must be grounded.
This also translates to the wall sockets which should also be grounded.
The ups could be damaged itself eventually if not plugged into a properly grounded electrical grid.
Don't know codes in your neck of the woods.
But even grounding the main panel to your water service main intake pipe is a form of grounding.
In N.A. mains are required to be grounded outside with earth grounds(pipe) as well as inside on the main water service.
