If you avoid using Reals you will still get the warning Solve::ifun, but
not {} as result
DSolve[{y'[x] == 1/5*y[x] - y[x]^2, y[0] == a}, y[x], x]
^^^
During evaluation of In[29]:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being
used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for
complete solution information. >>
Out[29]= {{y[x] -> (a E^(x/5))/(1 - 5 a + 5 a E^(x/5))}}
