Reinhard descriped the main diverce quite nicely already. 

unattended-upgrades comes with a default configuration that will only
apply security updates (but it can be configured in any way people
want) and it will do some careful checking to not upgrade packages
that require manual intervention bia conffile prompts. It will also
check that a security update does not bring in a new package from a
non-security source, not break the cache and offer logging/mail of
the changes to the administrator. It is designed to integrate nicely
with update-notifier and the apt cronjob.
