It sounds like you need a newer version of MatLab.

elementary OS Loki is based on Ubuntu 16.04, which is not supported by MatLab R2015A. According to the MatLab System Requirements, "Ubuntu 16.04 is supported as of R2016b."

  • I just tried to install MATLAB R2015A on Ubuntu 15.04 and had the same issue. Shouldn't it work ?! – Franciscone Luiz Dec 1 '16 at 12:27
  • From the system requirements document, it seems like MatLab only supports Ubuntu LTS releases. That's 14.04 for R2015A, and 16.04 for R2016B. – Ryan DeBeasi Dec 1 '16 at 15:09
