While my recollection of the script was that
it tried to verify that the database does not
exist before attempting to drop it (so one
should not have run into the issue), perhaps
the "drop database" stmt should be
enhanced with a "if exists" mysql/mariadb
extension which would let processing

Would that be a "good first issue" for a
new contributor pull request?
