  • One need to remove libraries as described in arch wiki:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MATLAB#Addon_manager_not_working
    and link system libraries.
    On Fedora 33 I removed the following libs from folder
    matlabroot/R2017b/cefclient/sys/os/glnxa64
    (star because there are three versions of this lib in matlab)
    libgio-2.0.so*
    libglib-2.0.so*
    libgmodule-2.0.so*
    libgobject-2.0.so*
    libgthread-2.0.so*
    and linked system versions of this libs at this place.
