What do you want to do with the information once you got it? I ask
because Debian includes some packages to do various periodic things for
updates and you might be reinventing the wheel. E.g. I use apticron [1]
on all the machines I manage which periodically checks if there's
upgradable packages an emails me a summary of them if there are. I
believe there are also means on doing other things.
