No, that's not how Ubuntu stable releases work. See for details.

Or, in other words, we did update it - we call it Ubuntu 18.10.

The next release will most likely have 1.4.16. 1.5 has yet to be
packaged, and needs able volunteers to join the packaging team if you
want it sooner. We're past feature freeze now, so the earliest it can be
expected, if volunteers appear, is in the Ubuntu 19.10 release.

Alternatively someone could volunteer to package it as a snap and make
the latest available to all Ubuntu releases at once, as well as to other
distributions. See for details.
