There are a couple of ways you can do this. But as mentioned the best way would be to use the systems package management system.
One way would be to create a central server that would at night push the updates to the servers using rsync then have a cron job install the updates.
Or you could do something similar above but use an ftp server and have the servers pull updates from the ftp server. then install the updates.
Course rsync would be a log better in my opinion.
