Why do I get the error "LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810" when trying to install MATLAB on a Mac?

I try to install MATLAB on my Mac. Launching doesn't do anything. Launching it in Terminal returns the following error:
LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Users/Bob/Downloads/

This issue is being currently investigated by MathWorks. As a possible workaround, run the following command in Terminal.
$ sudo open

Same problem here. Two separate machines tried with the same issue. Java problem? I had to resort to an older Mac just to get the offline files. The only difference isthe Java version.

Same issue here as well, when trying to install Matlab 2020a. I have tried as super user (sudo etc...) but the same error -10810 is generated. I am running MacOS 10.15.5.
