Hi - I upgraded to Fedora 24 and then installed matlab2016b. Any time I try to plot anything, it gives me the error:
/usr/local/matlab2016b/bin/glnxa64/../../sys/os/glnxa64/ version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by /lib64/
How do I fix this? Thanks. See below for an example:

>> figure; plot([0 1], [0 1]); Error using gca While setting property 'Parent' of class 'Axes': Can't load '/usr/local/matlab2016b/bin/glnxa64/': /usr/local/matlab2016b/bin/glnxa64/../../sys/os/glnxa64/ version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by /lib64/
Error in newplot (line 73) ax = gca(fig);

Hello guy!
I have the same problem. I follow this link steps but didn't work. Appear the same error.
Although it has managed to solve the problem of "`CXXABI_1.3.9' not found" by reinstalling mesa-libGLU-9.0.0-10.fc24.x86_64 library using dnf reinstall.
What would I do to solve that?
Thank you

The two answers above did not work for me. The following answer from stackoverflow helped:
What I did was I edited a file called (located in "path_to_ matlab/bin" folder and its hidden) and uncommented all lines that were(there are several of them): LDPATH_PREFIX='$MATLAB/sys/opengl/lib/$ARCH'
