How do you get the latest version of meld installed on the rpi (what are the proper commands/steps)?
using apt-get install meld installs a rather old version (3.16) instead of the current 3.20
pip3 seems to fail with a screen load of errors.
Raspbian (Debian) is not a 'rolling' type distribution. Instead they use a tested stable philosophy which means that package versions are locked and do not change until the next major release (except for security updates). Major releases are approximately every 2 years.
So either wait for the next release "Bullseye" or obtain the source code and compile yourself.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
