dnf has various options to handle situations with conflicting packages. See e.g. --allowerasing, --skip-broken and --nobest. Check out the dnf man page for a more explanation on each.

Have you consulted the Fedora documentation on installing MariaDB? (See Install from Fedora Main Repo).

In particular, make sure to read the section Installing MariaDB server from the Fedora Modular repository.
