This is the place to report a bug:

You're better off opening two separate bug reports, plus also telling us *exactly* what you were doing (also a list of packages on the system). It looks like you've installed 5.3, downgraded to 5.2, and are having issues correct?

You're right. DPKG seems to be exiting so we're clearly having some packaging issue

I wonder if an apt-get -f install might help here... ?

However, since something isn't being removed correctly quite possibly, running dpkg --purge --force-depends mariadb-server-5.2 (and replace with 5.3 as well) might help
