Hard to help when you don't show what the error messages are,

With dpkg, actions like deleting config files are something that it
remembers and honours, which can cause problems on later
(re)installation. If that's your issue then the way around it is:

$ sudo apt reinstall -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confask,confnew,confmiss" mariadb-server

If not, well, please show us what it says.
