When attempting to install on Ubuntu 21.04 I am hitting maybe road blocks.
sudo ./install will run the installer but I can't interact with the installer window if I want to choose anything but a default. This means once I reach the point where I enter the login name I can't enter any text.
.install on it's own auto populates the login name but obviously won't work because I need super user to write the files.
I manually created and activation files using the website but the installer will not allow me to change to file key installation. Clicking the menu item does nothing.
Do I have any other options?

Hi Matthew,
Ubuntu 21.04 is currently not a supported Operating System as of MATLAB R2021a.
Developers are aware of this issue, and may consider addressing this in a future release of MATLAB.
For a list of supported Operating Systems, please see the following documentation page:
