Fish is not recognizing the abbr command.

fish: Unknown command “abbr”
abbr: command not found

In all other ways fish is behaving normally.

The Fish documentation doesn't give any clues as to why this might happen.

Stack: EC2 Ubuntu machine, fish version 2.0.0.

abbr was not in 2.0.0 - it was only added in 2.2.0, so that's why it isn't working!

You can install the latest available packages (currently 2.2.0, soon to be 2.3.0) from the fish-shell Ubuntu PPA.
