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 

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


If you need something more sophisticated, and useful for a network
of machines running Linux then you can try The Redhat Network from
Redhat, that's it's supposed to be a very good tool to distribute
upgrades in a network with many machines.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
