You can't just update QGIS from 2.x to 3.x. It's now based on Qt5 and 
Python 3 and it's non-trivial to upgrade a 14.2 system to accommodate. 
You can try to follow the instructions at 
https://github.com/bosth/qgis3-slackbuild, but note that I haven't 
updated them since the Qt5 SlackBuilds were updated or since the 3.0 series.

I'm using 3.8 on Slackware-current, but you are on your own with 14.2. 
Look for QGIS 3 when 15.0 is released but probably not before then.
