Use the xticks function to set your x-tick locations.

We need to know what your x data looks like to give a solution specific to you. Is your x data already a datetime?
% spaced every 5 years
x = datetime(1990,1,1):years(1):datetime(2021,1,1);
y = rand(1,length(x));
plot(x,y)
% Use xticks to space every 2 years
figure
plot(x,y)
xticks(x(1):years(2):x(end))
xtickformat('yyyy')
