I know I am quite late to the party, but has

https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades

been offered as a possible answer? I have used it as a guide for
unattended-upgrades setup on a sizable handful of systems, and with
uniform success. As I recall it, install defaults apply only security
upgrades, and of course require that /etc/apt/sources.list include the
version appropriate reference to security.debian.org -

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

for example.
