athena-auto-update should not run when the user is logged in

We decided we don't care about machines being unavailable while they're taking an update. We should change athena-auto-update to run when idle. The desync period should be 2 hours during "low usage" times (2am -8 am) and should be 6 hours otherwise, to help protect against every machine in a cluster taking texlive-full simultaneously.

When a machine is being updated, we will touch /etc/nologin and switch to a new VT and display a message to users.

We should ensure updates run even on machines that get little-to-no idle time, such as quickstations.
