You mean something more then:

"An update was available, and was downloaded and installed successfully. 
You are now running sa-update version svn607589."

Which is the message generated by sa-update on my system, packed up into 
an e-mail to the root user when it runs daily.  I think it's a standard 
script that is part of SA...

If you want to know specifically what changed on the server - maybe a 
tripwire setup or use FSVS and version the entire server (well, except 
for stuff that doesn't need to be versioned like user data).  On our 
setup, after running sa-update, I could use FSVS to get a list of what 
files have changed and even do a diff between the old/new versions.
