I don't know of any way that cvs can do that, but you could
write a script to parse things.

What I do instead, is run script(1) first into a file like update_may28
and then run cvs.  That way I have a file with all the info that cvs
spits out for future reference.  I also have a record of any errors.

Just remember to exit from script after the update is done.
