Thank you for posting your question on the Mellanox Community.
On a local setup I made a ubuntu machine with the same specifications as your machine and installed the Mellanox MLNX_OFED as shown bellow:
# ./mlnxofedinstall --upstream-libs --without-fw-update --force
Logs dir: /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX.32432.logs
General log file: /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX.32432.logs/general.log
Below is the list of MLNX_OFED_LINUX packages that you have chosen
(some may have been added by the installer due to package dependencies):
Skipping FW update.
Installation passed successfully
To load the new driver, run:
# /etc/init.d/openibd restart
As you are using Ubuntu there is no need for --add-kernel-support option as the Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS) handles these functions.
You also need to have the proper kernel headers and modules install which can be done with
apt-get install linux-image-5.0.0-31-generic linux-headers-5.0.0-31-generic
Mellanox OFED requires certain packages which can be installed with
apt-get install perl dpkg autotools-dev autoconf libtool automake m4 dkms debhelper tcl tcl8.5 chrpath swig graphviz tcl-dev tcl8.5-dev tk-dev tk8.5-dev bison flex dpatch zlib1g-dev curl libcurl4-gnutls-dev python-libxml2 libvirt-bin libvirt0 libnl-3-dev libglib2.0-dev libgfortran3 automake m4 pkg-config libnuma-dev logrotate ethtool lsof libnl-route-3-dev

Thanks a lot for your prompt support!
With your instructions, I could install the OFED 4.7 to my platform without errors now.
And the installation for Kernel 4.15 works fine.
