To resolve this problem, open a Terminal window and use the commands below depending on your OS architecture:
For 64-bit Ubuntu:
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib64/
For 32-bit Ubuntu:
sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /lib/
For using the Student Version on 64-bit:
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib
Afterwards try starting MATLAB again.

I have the same problem, but /lib64/ exists. I don't get it:
/usr/local/bin/matlab: 1: /usr/local/bin/util/ /lib64/ not found
any idea ?
