The Matlab R2023a was successfully installed on Debian 12 and its documents was downloads too. Follow the instruction, the command below didn't run successfully as "mpm: command not found"
mpm install-doc --matlabroot=/home/jomalley/matlab
Error using mpm
This command is not supported when the mpm feature is not enabled. Start MATLAB with the -mpm command line switch.

There are two MPM, one is in MATLAB installation (with matlab -mpm) and the other is from GitHub. I found that mpm install-doc does not work in MATLAB and works in GitHub version.
For detail, this GitHub page is helpful.
You need the download MPM in Linux terminal.
chmod +x mpm
Then, you need to download docmentation ISO image from here and mount the ISO.
Then, run mpm install-doc from Linux terminal.
./mpm install-doc --matlabroot=/home/username/matlab --source=/path/to/source

Upon investigation, mpm is only suitable for linux terminal command line, not for windows installation
------2024 update-----

Note: The "mountedDocImage/bin/arch" in the offline ISO documentation image already contains the MPM executable, so there is no need to download MPM again.
Once you have downloaded the offline document ISO image, follow the steps below.
For example:
cd mountedDocImage/bin/arch
.\mpm install-doc --matlabroot="C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2024a" --destination="C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2024a"

What does mpm exactly do that could cause "access denied" problems (I tried the admin mode command prompt to no avail)? I remember I had similar trouble with R2023(a/b) and somehow it ended up working if I waited with the ISO loaded as virtual CD for a few hours then retried the command..

Is destination set to any other directory with write access?
