Do official updates ever brick phones?

Is it safe to upgrade your phone to Ice Cream Sandwich for example? Do official updates ever cause problems or brick phones?

Rarely bricking them but sure I remember at least one where some were bricked and manufacturers had to sort them out. Problems on the other hand not that unusual.

I once had an N97 bricked by an update... but that is about 1 of 150 or so times that I updated a phone's software without any problems....

Didn't think they'd released it yet.
