This question already has an answer here:

I've been playing with the Ubuntu Mini 18.04 LTS ISO tonight and tried to install a ppa for GIMP because 2.8 just won't cut it. The ppa I used is ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp.

Doing apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, it shows that nothing was upgraded. I installed update-manager to see if it can do it, but it claims that my system is up to date.

Looking at the output of the terminal for apt-get upgrade and apt-get install gimp, one thing caught my eye, and 1 not upgraded. I'm not sure exactly what that means and how it can help me, I just have a feeling that's important to this. Here's some terminal output to start with.

It's appear the ppa maintainer hasn't released GIMP 2.10.10 (the latest version) for Ubuntu 18.04, as you can see on his launchpad page, there's no GIMP 2.10.10 entry for 18.04—instead you see 17.10, 18.10, and 19.04.

Navigating to his website also yield the same result, take a look at → https://www.kesselgulasch.org/ppastats/gimp/gimp_2.10.10+om-1ubu18.04.12~ppa.html.

It seem Otto plan to release it on 4/22

Meanwhile you can install the same version as Snap package.

sudo apt-get install snapd
sudo snap install gimp

You also can install it from Flatpak. https://www.gimp.org/downloads/
