This official release channel seems to be unstable:

 

Radeon™ Software for Linux® 18.20 Release Notes

 

Attempting to download the Ubuntu 18.04 drivers results in a failed download sometimes (seems random, not based on net quality) when it nears completion. When the file does manage to download it is not in a format readable by tar and running unix file command shows the type as 'data' instead of 'XZ compressed data' as the command shows for the 16.04.4 drivers downloaded from the same page.
