This error will occur if the MathWorks Installer is unable to extract a new MathWorks Installer into the same destination folder as the product files. The product files will still be downloaded to the chosen destination folder; however, the MathWorks Installer files, such as the setup.exe or install script, will not be.
To workaround this error:
  1. Locate the downloaded product files in your selected destination folder and verify that the archives folder is available.
  2. Locate the extracted MathWorks Installer folder (_temp_matlab_R2021b_os64 folder) used to download the product files, or download and extract a new MathWorks Installer.
  3. Replace the archives folder from the extracted MathWorks Installer folder with the newly downloaded product files archives folder.
For further assistance, please contact Installation Support and attach your installation log file:
