Can't install Radeon drivers on Ubuntu 20.04 (5.4.0-54-generic)

I recently got an rx-6800 xt GPU and installed it in my system, it works great in Windows but I can't install the proper drivers in Linux.

I downloaded the install package from the AMD website, and ran it with sudo ./amdgpu-install -y

I got an error about amdgpu-dkms not being configured, so searched and found this post:

https://community.amd.com/t5/drivers-software/can-t-install-amdgpu-drivers-on-ubuntu-20-04-1-5-4-0-5...

which was solved by downgrading the kernel version to 5.4.0-54 from 5.4.0-56. I was already on 5.4.0-54, but still getting the same problem. Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Output of the amdgpu-install script (The full log exceeded the character limit so I started at the post-install script where the error happens):

Running the post_install script:

You need to remove 5.8 kernel.
