Let me get this straight :
+ you are running your very own dang Apache2 server
+ you've got 50 individual installs of WordPress
+ you'ld like to upgrade all instances of WP in one go

Some scripting ought to be able to fix that problem.
Qs :
+ do you have a logical/similiar file structure for where the WPs
  are installed like eg Sites/gTLD/domain/server/wp/ for all the
  WP installs ?

A pseudo alogrithm for this could look like this:

for each WPsite
    remove old WPfiles
    copy   new WPfiles


for each WPsite
    overwrite with new WPfiles
