Manpage should mention systemd service and not only cron #209

Currently, manpage explain that unattended-upgrade is designed to be run from cron (e.g. via /etc/cron.daily/apt). As systemd is now installed by default on Debian and Ubuntu, I think it would be great modify this sentence to explain that it can also be run from systemd (/lib/systemd/system/apt-daily-upgrade.service if I understand well).

I think this modification will make unattended-upgrades easier to understand and use for newcomers.
