I am trying to install Matlab on ubuntu 20.04 running on a raspberry pi 4. I have double checked and the OS is definitely 64bit as i know 32 bit operating systems are not supported. whenever i try to run the install script i get this error:
./install: 1: exec: /home/ubuntu/install_matlab/matlab_2021b_installer/bin/unknown/install_unix_legacy: not found
i have tried 2020b and 2021b but i get the same error with both versions of matlab
i have tried several different methods to unzip the installation folder but no matter what i do i get the same error message. i have tried everything from this matlab answers quetion but nothing works:
let me know if you need anymore information from me
Many Thanks

The system requirements for installing MATLAB 2020b requires any Intel or AMD x86-64 processor (Raspberry pi uses ARM cortex processor). Also, the minimum RAM requirement is 4GB. Refer this document for release 2020b system requirements. Refer this for all previous releases system requirements.
Hope this helps!

@Kumar Pallav, I encoutnered the same error when installing MATLAB 2022b on Linux desktop (Ubuntu 18.04). The install scripts "install_unix" or "install_unix_legacy" are simply missing from the bin/glnxa64/ folder, likely due to unsufficient testing on Linux for the release team. Please let me know if I can still download matlab using the old way of indivudual component packages from the Lincense Center (instead of a single installer).
