Install Updates, Toolboxes, Support Packages, and Add-Ons in Containers

You can install the latest MATLAB® updates or install additional toolboxes, support packages, and add-ons in a container. Then, you can save the container for later use to avoid having to reinstall your changes.

To install or update MATLAB, you must run MATLAB with superuser privileges. At a terminal inside the container session, start MATLAB with root privileges using the following command.

sudo matlab

You can install updates and toolboxes from within MATLAB. For information on how to install updates, see Update an Existing Installation (MATLAB). For information on how to install toolboxes and add-ons, see Get and Manage Add-Ons (MATLAB). For example, to add Simulink® to your MATLAB container, go to the Add-On Explorer and install Simulink.

After installing the desired updates and toolboxes, make sure you save the container for later use to avoid having to reinstall your changes. For more information see, Save Changes in Containers (Cloud Integrations).
