Alternate Debian Method

This method requires no extra packages other than what the base system provides. It shows a count of all packages that need to be updated, not just security updates. The second command returns a list of all the updated packages. You need to be running apt-get update via cron to make sure the system is checking for new packages on a regular basis.
