The PATH variable setting is not correct. Did you try to logout / login again. Try to source ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile with command

. ~/.profile

or

. ~/.bash_profile

Please note the dot and space in the above commands

Then see what you get when you run

echo $PATH

Try setting your path like this:

PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
export PATH

Then try one of your commands.
