I am a new Linux user and I heard about the new GNOME 3.30. Can someone help me with the steps to upgrade my GNOME?
I have GNOME 3.28, Kernel 4.18.7
Note: I don't wish to upgrade to 18.10

According to The Best New Features in GNOME 3.30 :
It will be available to download as source code from the GNOME Gitlab page, and be available to try via a live USB image.
Although many Linux distributions come with GNOME by default few distribute major new releases right away, instead choosing to ship the update as part of a new release.
Rolling release distros are the exception of course, so Arch, Manjaro and others will likely make this update available soon.
Please note the second paragraph.
There's also a detailed answer to an earlier question of similar nature here: How to get Gnome 3.14 on ubuntu 14.04.
Edit: and now GNOME 3.30 is available via Flatpak.
