This question already has an answer here:

I have been happily using the Gnome desktop environment to complete my day-to-day computing. Recently, I learned that Gnome 3.10 was released. I tried to update using the ppa: gnome3-team/gnome3. However, apt-get update is unable to find that ppa. I also discovered that I am actually using Gnome 3.4.1, not 3.8.x. How can I upgrade?\

Notes: I installed using sudo apt-get install gnome and am using Ubuntu 12.04.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
