MATLAB does not have a built in repair ability in the installer. Instead, simply re-run the MATLAB installer and it will lay down new installation files. If you had any preferences or settings for the same version of MATLAB that were not corrupt, they will be preserved by the new installation.

Delete the installation folder and try again.
