Following the suggestion of @gunnar-hjalmarsson, I removed LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 from the files: /etc/default/locale and /etc/environment. I also removed the file: ~/.pam_environment.

Just to expand user276568 answer, if you're installing from a CDROM, the file system is write only. You can workaround this with directory binds: cp -dR [cdrom path]/bin/glnxa64/ /tmp cd /tmp/glnxa64 rm libstdc++.so.6 ln -s libstdc++.so.6.* libstdc++.so.6 sudo mount -o bind /tmp/glnxa64/ [cdrom path]/bin/glnxa64/ You can also copy the CDROM content to a ...

I had to install g++. @steeldriver, thank you for pointing me in the right direction :) I specifically installed a version 4.7 of g++ because my gcc that matlab needed was only 4.7.x,and the mex compilations with my version of matlab were not compatible with the default 4.8 that ubuntu 14.04 runs.
