Sorry, but that would be very bad.
First, you have to know about the error so next time you remember to
first close the files before you do the update.
Then, the update has to stop and not run further since the file failed
to update. Going on with the update would mean an inconsistent working
copy where not all files are at the same revision.
That's also why a cleanup is required.
