For qualified MacOS and Windows versions, R2020a and later releases will inherit system proxy server settings. For qualified Linux distributions, R2021b and later releases will inherit the system proxy settings via the "https_proxy/HTTPS_PROXY" environment variables.
User proxy settings are not supported by the MathWorks product installer. 
Alternatively you can perform an offline installation by following the instructions contained in the article below:

I couldn't find the support article you mentioned, but I also can't find a link to download the iso, and using a modified direct link that you posted in other threads, I get the error message "You do not have permission to download the MathWorks ISO image. To download the MathWorks ISO image, you must be an Administrator of a professional license."
