If you report a bug and the security and bug fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later.

Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages can get left in favour of stability. This is especially true in the LTS releases.

There may be a PPA here on Launchpad.net but these come with the usual caveats of a PPA. Remember to filter the PPA for your release of Ubuntu as not all PPAs support all releases
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=gimp

You can start the process of logging a bug with:
ubuntu-bug gimp

You have to be aware that Ubuntu copies packages from Debian, and also in Debian there is only version 2.10.18 so far.
https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=gimp&searchon=names&exact=1

First step to get gimp 2.10.20 into Ubuntu is creating a bug report in Debian, that they upgrade their packages (if such bug report does not yet exist).
When creating a bug report for Ubuntu a reference to the related Debian bug should be provided.

Can you help with this problem?
