It sounds like a hardware problem due to the earlier power problems.
There's no way a software update could be interrupted at the same
point on several machines, and produce the same exact error during
boot on those machines.

Check the power warts. They are cheap and go bad on their own. They
don't need a power surge or brownout to smoke them. That you had a
[significant enough] power event was probably more than enough to
break them.

Or, check your power distribution strip if the machines are plugged
into the same strip.
