This has been asked several times No Ubuntu Mate will not work on the pi3B+ until it has been updated by the maintainers.

there is a community attempt to get it working that is posted about on this thread viewtopic.php?f=63&t=208538

I was able to make a bootable USB image of Ubuntu Mate for the Raspberry Pi 3B & 3B+. Thanks to everyone who participated in this thread :)

I made torrents of the images:

If anyone prefers a direct download instead of a torrent, send me a PM (not posting those publicly to save my bandwidth)

You are a gentleman and a scholar I need to get you a beer. I was at this for a few days and couldn't do it. Your download literally was the only one that worked with etcher with matching hash and loaded on my Pi3B+

Good man!

Looks like it can be done with Etcher (no need to unzip the file first)
