Please help me how to solve it.

This is the response I got from MathWorks support:
"Thanks for sharing the information. Our development team has been aware of this error message and it will be fixed in MATLAB R2020a Update 4. This error message won't affect your ability of using MATLAB, so please ignore it for now."

The error is present even in R2020a update 6, however I solved it by re-installing matlab.

I had the same issue. I was able to fix the problem by entering a few simple commands (shown below). Note this process will reset MATLAB's path settings to factory default, so you may want to backup your current path like so:
>> savepath([pwd filesep 'pathbackup.m'])
To fix the warning message issue, enter the following commands...
>> rehash toolboxcache
>> restoredefaultpath
>> savepath
>> exit
The exit command will close MATLAB. After the program shuts down, restart MATLAB; the warning message should no longer appear. Upvote if it works! Comment if not!

I did not need to take any of the steps you described. For me, updating to R2020a Update 4 was enough to get rid of the error message.
