If it completed the update before the battery ran down it should be fine.

(Well, as fine as any system after a Windows update, which seems to have a non-zero chance of causing problems even under ideal conditions...)
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Even if the update failed in the middle it should somewhat gracefully revert and then try the update again later.

You're probably fine...
