I have intalled the latest version of matlab onto a Ubuntu machine. I also installed the support package available on the software library. Matlab works perfectly except certain function do not react at all. This includes using any add-on links, the add-on manager, trying to log in, or even use the request support etc buttons. They are clickable, but nothing happens.
Any help woudl be appreciated

For archlinux, you have to install libsepol and libselinux from AUR.

@Simone Perriello's answer works and you may also need to install libxss from Arch core repositories. This missing dependency was found from Answer by Joakim Lindblad on 27 Feb 2018

To get "Manage Add-Ons" to work: Run from matlab prompt:
>> cd(matlabroot)
>> cd bin/glnxa64
>> !./MATLABWindow -url= --disable-gpu
If it tells you '' is missing, then try to install it (I don't know where to find it on Ubuntu; on Gentoo I run 'emerge libselinux')

Ok, a year and so later, I'm back at the same problem. This time I got as output from:
!./MATLABWindow -url= --disable-gpu
./MATLABWindow: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/ undefined symbol: g_log_structured_standard
This was solved by
Then the Add-ons window worked, however, no typing! Gah!
Copy pasting stuff into the dialog boxes was enough for me...
Some internet sources say it works if you're root, but then my licence manager complained.

Another library that needs to be present is, which is installed by the libXScrnSaver package on RHEL 8.

I'm having a similar issue: I can open the addon explorer and the sign in, but whenever I go to click on a textbox, I cannot fill out the field.
I've tried setting aside the libraries mentioned in, but that did not help at all.
I'm running Ubuntu 18.10, kernel 4.18.0-16-generic, MATLAB version (R2018b).

I had the same issue, no textbox was working. Having started MATLAB with root privilege (sudo matlab) it works fine.
Hope that helps.

I've encountered the same issue where the install update and sign in buttons were unresponsinve. I am on arch linux and after installing libselinux thinks started to work but now I have the following strange behaviour where whenever I press the button install updates it oscilates between R2018 update 2 and R2018 update 4 and it never goes beyond that in updating for instance to R2019a. I don't know is this the default behaviour or if something is not working completely.
If anyone has any ideas plz let me know. Thanks!

Please try to run the following in the MATLAB Command Window:
>> opengl software
And then try opening the Add on explorer again. It worked for me.
If that works, you can save the preference so that MATLAB always opens with Software OpenGL by running:
>> opengl('save','software')
