cron-apt is a flexible program that can manage automating apt via cron.

Step1. Install cron-apt in Debian

apt-get install cron-apt

Step2. Configure it:

The configuration file is located in /etc/cron-apt/ directory.
For a basic configuration I have everything set to default except for two lines in /etc/cron-apt/config file

You  can also modify when the cron-apt  runs in the /etc/cron.d/cron-apt file.
