I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from network boot mini.iso. I want to install fully-functional MATE DE to it.
How should I install it correctly to look like Ubuntu MATE?

You have to install special task package with one of two methods:
sudo apt-get install tasksel sudo tasksel install ubuntu-mate-desktop
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-mate-desktop^
And then use the full power power and enjoy the beauty of MATE DE.
1. if you are interested in installing the minimal MATE DE - it is installable from other task package named
ubuntu-mate-core - see my other answer.
2. do not use
tasksel to remove packages from the system (see this post for details)!
