  • What do you exactly mean by that you can't find MATLAB? What output do you get when you run whereis matlab? – ARG Mar 7 '17 at 15:58

I had the same issue - installer finishes without doing anything.

Cause: I had mounted a .iso file of the DVD, copied everything over and attempted to run the installer from the copied files. That doesn't work.

You must run the installer from the DVD or from the mounted .iso.
