I'm currently installing Matlab R2020A on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (Distro: Lubuntu) which is installed on WSL Ubuntu, and have unzipped the installation package into a directory. After unzipping the package, I ran the command:
sudo ./install
However, the command is running but I cannot see the installation manager, which I confirmed through the Task Manager. What should I do?

Hi Michael,
After unzipping the package, try to access the terminal as superuser using
sudo su
and then continue with the installation using
sudo ./install
Please refer to the below discussion on the same lines:

I tried the instructions above however when I try sudo ./install, the installation GUI that should show up doesn't show up at all (however on task manager I can see that the process is running). Any ideas on what might be the problem (Note that I'm trying to install this on WSL, which still has major graphical issues, could this be a problem)? Thanks.
