Replace the \definefontfamily line with

  \definetypeface [mainface] [rm] [specserif] [Unifraktur Maguntia] [default]

because the new font command was added last autumn and your TeXLive installation
uses a older context version (not sure if the \feature command exists there).

What do you expect from a text with doesn’t contain any long s in the input.

Maybe your expecting from context to make the right choice for the s but there
are cases where you won’t get the correct output and manual correction
is necessary.
