I just used the example from doc,
x = 1:10:100;
y = [20 30 45 40 60 65 80 75 95 90];
err = 8*ones(size(y));
errorbar(x,y,err)
However, the figure has no connecting lines, unlike the documentation:

What version of the documentation did you use? The current online documentation is for R2016b, and that code works correctly for me (connects the centres of the bars with a line, and plotting the error bars) in R2016b.
Type:
doc errorbar
in your Command Window to get the documentation for your version. There could be version differences.

does this do anything?
errorbar(x,y,err,'*b')
it won't add lines, it's just to check if you're able to modify the line properties besides just the color. If that works then try
errorbar(x,y,err,'--b')

Or after you plot it you could try
set(gca,'linestyle','--')

thanks for the following up. I can't reproduce my original problem on another computer, so I guess something was wrong with my setup. Luckily after updating my Matlab to 2016b it fixed itself.
