I am trying to install Matlab 2021a headlessly on a linux server. To do this, I downloaded the web installer on windows 10, then selected the "Download only" option from the "advanced tab" for linux. This downloaded a full (unzipped) directory of matlab. I transferred the files to my linux system, then when I attempt to install, I get the same error as here. The steps to fix it depend on unzipping the directory within linux, but the initial download (from windows 10) gives me a completely unzipped file. I've been zipping this up and moving that to the linux system via sftp.
So, my question is- am I doing this right? is there some link I can use to grab the files directly ("curl")?
