nowadays, many distibutions have own tools to easily update the packages. I think about "apt-get update/upgrade" for 
Debian, "yum" on Fedora...
You could probably in an easy way write a little script (maybe playing with sudo) to automate these updates and cron it.

As i'm not a Linux expert, take this just like a probable way.
