It's a pretty bad idea to try an upgrade the Gnome version in an Ubuntu release. Ubuntu releases on a 6 month cycle to align with Gnome releases, and the version of Gnome in Ubuntu is core to its ability to function correctly. I don't think newer Gnome versions will be made available in Jaunty any repositories. If you want Gnome 2.28, you will need to upgrade to Karmic - the release candidate is due out in a week or so.
