You are looking for maven versions plugin:
versions:display-dependency-updates Displays all dependencies that have newer versions available.
This will show a list of all updated dependencies. There is a similar command to show a list of all the updated plugins.

versions:display-property-updates to update the dependency versions if they are specified as properties in the pom file.
