Install Gnome 3.28 on top of Linux Mint 19.3

UPDATE 02/05/20
1. I sincerely apologize for missing an option of same install via snapd. Post below is fixing this and does install Gnome 3.28 avoiding kernel upgrade and using PPAs. 
 See  "Setup Gnome 3 on Linux Mint via snapd daemon"
2. However, I would guess that CVE's from the list 
should be gone for sure in Ubuntu Kernel build 5.5.1(2)
Another reason for kernel upgrade on Mint might be
So non-snap build down here might make some sense due to
presence of kernel upgrade.
Proceed as follows :-

$ sudo add-apt-repsitory ppa:teejee2008/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ukuu

Invoke from system menu "Kernel Update Utility"
select kernel 5.5.1 (just highest version available at the moment) and click install . When done

$ sudo reboot

Select from system menu "Software Sources" and add PPAs

Now you should see via Linux Mint GUI three  PPAs added 
1. ppa:teejee2008/ppa
2. ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
3. ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging

Switch to terminal session and run

$ sudo apt update

It would make two gnome PPAs available for package

$ sudo apt install gnome
$ sudo apt install gnome-shell

Re-login selecting "GNOME" or "GNOME on Xorg"

  Linux Mint VM survives cold reboots with no problems
  Verifying whether Gnome 3 is running on Xorg or Wayland

Another kernel upgrade to 5.5.2
