I have a Matlab Academic license. After activation Matlab, the script does not open. I tried the specified methods. I don't know where the problem is, when I click on the matlab icon nothing happens. MATLAB file where is "usr/local/MATLAB/R2020a"
I am new users on Linux based system
Error :
License checkout failed.
License Manager Error -8
Make sure the HostID of the license file matches this machine, and that the HostID on the SERVER
line matches the HostID of the license file.
Troubleshoot this issue by visiting:
Diagnostic Information:
Feature: MATLAB
License path: /root/.matlab/R2020a_licenses:/usr/local/MATLAB/R2020a/licenses/license.dat:/usr/local/MATLAB/R2020a
Licensing error: -8,523.

Please try the troubleshooting steps provided in the link here, and let us know if it helped or not.
For your case, you should try the steps for the first reason ie: The Host ID for which the license.dat file was generated is not the Host ID of the license server machine
