This question already has an answer here:

According to http://tipsonubuntu.com/2017/05/30/install-sublime-text-3-ubuntu-16-04-official-way/, apt-get install sublime-text was the right way to install Sublime.

Unfortunately, I can't find it in Lubuntu 18.10.

user@linux:~$ sudo apt show sub
subcommander            subiquity-tools         subread                 substance-flamingo-doc  subtle

I've already updated the system (sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade), but still can't find it. What seems to be the issue here?

Thats beacuse sublime-text is not in ubuntu repository as default. you should fisrt add its repository to your systems repository: 1. install the key:

wget -qO - https://download.sublimetext.com/sublimehq-pub.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
  1. add its repository:
echo "deb https://download.sublimetext.com/ apt/stable/" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sublime-text.list

Now install it:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sublime-text
