I am trying to install the Dynare-Matlab in my Ubuntu 18.10 system. Installing Dynare worked fine. But when trying the Dynare-Matlab I receive this error message about an invalid user in Matlab.
sudo apt-get install dynare-matlab Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

Where I have XXXXXX is my university email address, from which I have my Matlab license. It did not ask me any information regarding licenses while installing. I don't know how I should proceed. Any help would be highly appreciated.
PS: I hope this is the correct place to ask. I think it has something to do with Matlab on Ubuntu.
