Can you login as a superuser or root and see if ls works.

you can "su -s" to get a root shell.

Try-
pwd
ls -lah

Open in new window

'pwd' is parent working directory where as the other 'ls' list in long listing format.

you have mistake in your cd command:

cd.. (you need to leave space between cd and ..)

To look for dirs only, try

ls -la | grep ^dr

The reason your ls command returned nothing is that your initial working directory has no files in it.

If you want to look at all the folders on the system, you will want to start by listing the root, so do:

ls /
