I'm trying to install an additional package of R2016a. My host is linux. Following instructions from I have the installer located in
/usr/local/src/bin/glnxa6
I succeeded in installing R2016a originally by running
install_unix
Now, when I run it trying to install the additional package, I get the following
Preparing installation files ...
/bin/cp: missing destination file operand after ‘/usr/local/src/sys/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/COPYRIGHT’
Try '/bin/cp --help' for more information.
/bin/cp: missing destination file operand after ‘/usr/local/src/java/config’
Try '/bin/cp --help' for more information.
/bin/cp: missing destination file operand after ‘/usr/local/src/bin/glnxa64/ddux_settings’
Try '/bin/cp --help' for more information.

I'm not sure whether the cp messages are significant, but I'm not getting the usual gui that would allow me to select my additional package. Could anybody advise please?

I am trying to install R2016a (not additional package)on my Ubuntu 14.04 laptop and almost have the same issue. In my case, I only get the following, and no cp errors.

By the way, I also have .iso file for R2015b and it just works fine.
