We need a developer with the same GPU to reproduce the problem.
In the meantime you can check if the driver installed is the most up to date on the AMD website.

I may be wrong but from system-info it seems that the OpenGL driver is not even installed.

Same issue with 5700 and AMDGPU-PRO. Recently reported on another bug by me.

I can send my 5700 to a developer if they need it to fix this.

OpenCL still not recongnised but blender is very usable.

OpenCL still not recongnised but blender is very usable.

The attached system-info.txt reports 1 device with OpenCL detected.
Do you mean OpenGL?
Anyway it would be pretty hard for blender to be usable without OpenGL.

Was the original issue fixed? If this is the case the report can be closed.
Any other issues should be reported separately.

Nope, same issues. Have gone back to previous GFX card until better support is available.
