I attempt to run license manager and I receive the following error. I am aware of the LSB and LSB-core packages that need to be installed. Those have not solved my problem.
Checking license file for local hostname and local hostid . . .
/usr/local/MATLAB/R2016a/etc/lmhostid: 332: /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016a/etc/lmhostid: /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016a/etc/glnxa64/lmhostid: not found
Error: Your hostname matches the hostname on a SERVER line in
your license file but the lmhostid in that line does not.
Your local lmhostid(s) are:
Your hostname is: PSYC-SL500818
The SERVER line in question is:
SERVER PSYC-SL500818 989096AE6106 27000
Please stop, fix the problem, and try again . . .
Continue to start up license manager? y/[n]) n

FlexNet versions 11.8 and above (MATLAB R2011a) require the Linux Standard Base (LSB) 3.0 components in order to run on Linux systems. LSB is an open standard meant to simplify software support across multiple Linux distributions.
LSB 3.0 or higher is included by default with modern Red Hat and SUSE based distributions. LSB is not installed by default on Debian and Debian based distributions (including Ubuntu), but is available as a standard installation package.
To test whether LSB is installed on a Debian based distribution, execute the following command:
dpkg --get-selections | grep lsb
To install the full LSB package on a Debian type system, execute the command (as root):
apt-get install lsb
The license manager requires the lsb-core and its dependent packages only, which are included in the full LSB package. If desired, the lsb-core and dependencies only may be installed using this command (as root):
apt-get install lsb-core
Hope this helps
