There is a big problem. I see on this report you have still fb (fireboard) tables and so it's not an upgrade but a migration.
A migration from fireboard directly to Kunena 5.2 is not possible.
You have overlooked the time when it was possible. Does your old website still exist? Otherwise, you need a local installation  with php 5 and an older Joomla version.
Import the fb tables to this database and adjust the prefix
Install as intermedia step Kunena 4.0.12 (Kunena recognizes the old tables and migrated this tables to the new structure)
github.com/Kunena/Kunena-Forum/releases/tag/4.0.12
Upgrade Kunena
Import the new created kunena tables to the current webpage and install Kunena

Thanks. I do not know what fireboard is and it was never installed on that site afaik. And I cannot see any table called fireboard or fb in the db. I do not have any data that need to be migrated.

Sorry, it was my mistake. I've asked the developer, and it's normal if the installation check if fb tables exists. Fireboard was the forum software before Kunena.
Please go to administrator/logs and post the content of the com_kunena.log.php. But use the confidential tags for it (padlock symbol in the editor). Please, tell us your MySQL version too.

Hello,

There are the same error each time returned by mariadb :
Index column size too large. The maximum column size is 767 bytes.

it's a known issue with MySQL before the 5.7 version and with MariaDB before the 10.2 version the limit is set to 767 bytes and you can't do nothing except update the version of Mariadb/Mysql which in newer version the limit has been increased to 3072 bytes,using UTF8mb4 needs more space too. So is-it possible to update the mariadb version on your hosting ?
 

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.
