I'll never  understand why being so drastic is a good idea when you can
simply disable it:

https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades

"Below is an example /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02periodic:
// Control parameters for cron jobs by /etc/cron.daily/apt-compat //


// Enable the update/upgrade script (0=disable)
APT::Periodic::Enable "1";"
