Is there a way to do all that

  1. Do Callout in Queueable
  2. Do Dml based on the Callout result
  3. Catch errors in 1 and 2.
  4. Rollback 1, 2 on error
  5. Report error via email and log in Custom object

without running into

common.apex.runtime.impl.ExecutionException: You have uncommitted work pending. Please commit or rollback before calling out

This is how my code looks like:

public class MyQueue implements Queueable, Database.AllowsCallouts {

    public void execute(QueueableContext context) {
        Savepoint sp = Database.setSavepoint();

        try {
            List<SObject> result = getDataViaCallout();


            insert result; 
        catch(Exception ex) {
            insert new ErrorLog__c(Cause__c = ex.getMessage());

I think that the instruction

Savepoint sp = Database.setSavepoint();

makes a DML, then you can't do a callout after that. You just need to do your callout in a separate context.
