I need to downgrade from Sitecore 8.2 update 5 to Sitecore 8.2 update 2 due issues in a specific package on my solution as it seems it does not support Sitecore 8.2 update 5 yet.

Is there any path that I can achieve that?

It would be better if you start with a fresh Sitecore instance and move content, Code to it.

  1. Install fresh instance of Sitecore 8.2 Update - 2
  2. Move your items, templates, media, security objects etc back to the new instance, I would recommend using Sitecore serialization, Or unicorn , Sitecore packages might have some limitations and it times out for large packages
  3. Publish Site.
  4. Update the references in your solution back to Sitecore 8.2-u2 , Build and deploy to your new Sitecore instance
  5. Compare App_config folder with the old folder to see if you have changes on sitecore configurations that are not maintained with your source control/Solution
