Follow-up Comment #5:

I think this but report can be closed, everyone is encouraged to improve the
build instructions and tips on the wiki.

Building Octave is definitely an advanced user topic. If you want to build the
latest version of Octave for Ubuntu, you might consider downloading the Debian
source package and building it with 'dpkg-buildpackage'.

If you only want to install the latest version, and don't actually care about
compiling it yourself, you might consider updating your Ubuntu to 19.10 and
installing Octave with Flatpak or Snap. Ubuntu 18.10 is end-of-life
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS should include Octave 5.2.0.
