MATLAB and Simulink are validated on standard installations of the distributions listed on our system requirements page. “Minimal” or “core” installations of Linux may lack the necessary software packages required to install and run MATLAB and Simulink. You can likely add required software packages to a minimal Linux installation, but technical support will be limited. 
You can find the dependencies required for MATLAB R2019b and newer for Ubuntu by viewing the base_dependencies.txt for the matlab-deps docker image. MATLAB R2021b and newer additionally have this text file for Ubi8. This can be found on the following page:
Under "files" on the left side of the page, select the desired release, and then operating system. Then, click on base_dependencies.txt to view the dependencies needed.
