I run Matlab R2018b update 2 in Ubuntu 18.10, of course as a non-root user.
If I try to update to update 3, I get an error that the install directory is not writable - of course - it should ask the sudo password.
I installed update 2 by reinstalling Matlab after downloading which contained update 2.
Now I need to do the same but the download does not contain update 3.
Please correct both issues.
Kind regards,

Dirty trick to be able to use the matlab GUI to install update 3:
bert@Dell7577Linux:/usr/local/MATLAB$ sudo chown -R bert R2018b/
bert@Dell7577Linux:/usr/local/MATLAB$ sudo chgrp -R bert R2018b/
and after installation:
bert@Dell7577Linux:/usr/local/MATLAB$ sudo chgrp -R root R2018b/
bert@Dell7577Linux:/usr/local/MATLAB$ sudo chown -R root R2018b/
