"DOC is not currently available" error when using the local documentation in MATLAB

I don't want to connect to the Internet just to read a file, so I've set up documentation variable to "local" from "Web", but it appears there's no file or something, because I get
DOC is not currently available
Also, is it possible to change preferences like these without using GUI? I hate its look and feel.

Just google the name of the toolbox you want plus "pdf documentation". You can find the documentation homepage for the toolbox, where you can find the pdf documentation as well as user guide and release notes. For example for the deep learning toolbox:
"matlab deep learning pdf documentation"

There are some MATLAB Preferences that you can change using the command line, but the Help preference doesn't seem to be one of them:
