Hi, I bought 2017a student version of Matlab & Simulink. Haven't used it for months but when I tried to use it again, it asks me to update the license. How come? Isn't license that came with the Student version a perpectual license?

Did you purchase a Student Version directly from Mathworks, or is what you have bought from your university?

I agree with you the license is perpetual (with the exception it is expected you sop using the Student Version once not being a student anymore).
So what happens when you click on "update license"? I expect this just being the update of the license file, not purchasing an update.
