I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later. Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages can be left in favour of stability. This is especially true in the LTS releases.

There may be a PPA here on Launchpad.net. Obviously the usual caveats that come with PPAs apply.

Manfred Hampl suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #3037: “no rolling release”.

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=ddclient

Filter each PPA for your release. You can see this with:

lsb_release -c

May help you get the newer version

You have to be aware that Ubuntu is taking over packages from Debian (to avoid double packaging work), and as far as I can see also Debian has only version 3.8.2.
First steps towards binging version 3.9.0 to Ubuntu are creating a bug report for Ubuntu (already done by somebody else, Bug #1800150 ) and creating a bug report in the Debian bug tracker (unless such bug report already exists there).

Can you help with this problem?
