Ah, I downloaded the version I have from Mint's software manager, which

(16.04). Is there any way I can get 3.18.x running on my machine?

The whole point of LTS versions (as Ubuntu calls them) is that the
versions of the software are stable over the whole lifetime of the OS.
If you want to keep the stability of the LTS version, then don't
upgrade a package to a non repository version. If you don't care about
that stability, then why bother with LTS.

(P.S. Cinnamon is based on Gnome 3 so it should be able to support Gnome

3.10 should be popping up alerts - check the Gnome notification centre
that Evolution alerts are enabled.

I don't really care for LTS, it's just that Mint happens to be built on
top of Ubuntu 14.04, and I prefer it over normal Ubuntu. I tried
downloading the tarball from the official website, which said building
instructions would be in an INSTALL file, and then not providing the
file in the tarball. Any help setting up 3.18 would be appreciated.
