Description of my issue:

Not an issue, just a question. What does "Update only to developer releases?" do? Will it automatically install the current stable release of Akeebabackup unattended? It'd be nice for multple sites.

Nope. As documented:

Update only to developer releases

When selected, the Live Update feature will not notify you of official releases (alphas, betas, RCs and stables). Instead, it will notify you whenever a Developer's Release is published and allow you to update to it. This should only be used on test sites and only if you want to try out the latest and greatest features before they are well-tested and released to the public. Developer's Releases may be broken or malfunction in unexpected ways. You have been warned.
