Hi, Please help, Im encountering

./install: 1: exec: /home/murali/Downloads/matlab/bin/unknown/install_unix: not found

error when i used $ sudo ./install

command, what is the reason? how can I overcome it


It looks like your shell does not know something about your CPU architecture so instead of a path like bin/i686 bin/arm it’s creating /home/murali/Downloads/matlab/bin/unknown/install_unix you might be able to work around this by creating a soft link from unkown to the correct directory.
