I wonder how I can update/compile QupZilla from source?

To build it from source, follow these steps (as root):
Download source of the latest version. (For now it is v2.0.1)
# wget https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla/archive/v2.0.1.tar.gz
Extract the zipped archive and enter into the source directory.
# tar xvf v2.0.1.tar.gz # cd qupzilla-2.0.1
BUILD.md for important points. For example, it says that
Qt 5 (>= 5.6) is required.

Amendment #1 - Start
The highest version in Ubuntu Mate repo is
Qt 5.5.1 as the question owner says below.
Qt 5 having version equal or higher than
Qt 5.6 as described at Qt for Linux/X11 - Build from Source. Be sure that you have enough space to compile Qt from source. Here is the link to source of Qt 5.7.
Amendment #1 - End
Set installation path
QUPZILLA_PREFIX to whatever you want. The default prefix is /usr. Detailed explanations about this configuration and about many others can be found in
# export QUPZILLA_PREFIX=/opt/qupzilla-2.0.1
Compile and install. Some dependencies may be missing on the system. They can be easily installed with
# qmake # make # make install
After successful make and install, the browser binary can be found under
