Is there a way to retrieve any notification that appears in the inbox of stackexchange? Or is there another technique to retrieve notifications on updates?

Currently, no. The inbox isn't exposed (as doing so would require user authentication, which is also not yet available).
However, most of what goes into the inbox is available* via the API. Look into
*Polling (very occasionally) with sort=activity/creation and min=<last time you polled>.
