If the setup is identical one can use cron-apt and it's own mirror which
he updates manually. He can also have the already mentioned machine with
the same setup in the test lab which he updates from an official mirror
and if satisfied with the update process and result can run the manual
update on the mirror that all the machines are using.

But again, those are solutions that may or may not work for the OP. It's
highly dependable on his situation.
