Collect as much information as you can (including *full* output from
synaptic), and file a bug report. 10.0 is still alpha, and apparently there
are issues with the .deb packaging that need to be solved (the dependencies to
seamlessly replace mysql are quite complex)

Meanwhile, if you were trying to build MariaDB and make some tests, you do not
need .deb packages, you need the source .tar.gz. Or if you were trying to
setup your own server and run SQL against it, maybe you can use 5.5 or the
binary tarballs until the .deb can be fixed.
