I was just updating OS X Lion's iTunes and Garage Band. I thought I closed all the applications but I was mistaken. Does it cause any problems if some applications are still opened while updating OS X Lion?

Things that need a system restart will close your apps automatically before they restart your machine (if they can, if you have unsaved work it will wait until you do that).

The recent updates to GB and iTunes did not require a restart, so you can just carry on. This would be true of other minor updates that don't require a restart.
