When I type in ./install in my Linux shell, it says it's installing and completes in 10 seconds, but doesn't bring up the installation manager.

Hello Brenda,
As I understand, you are trying to install MATLAB in Linux from the command line and are not getting the installation manager to show up. The most likely reason is that you do not have permissions to one or more of the files in the installation folder. Execute the following before trying launch the installer:
sudo chmod -R 777 matlab_R20XXx_glnxa64
sudo ./install
