I willing to get a list of variables for the host using ansible all -m system and keep getting an error:

The module system was not found in configured module paths. Additionally, core modules are missing. If this is a checkout, run 'git pull --rebase' to correct this problem.

What is the default directory for the module files?

Listing variables for a host would be done using the setup module:

$ ansible -m setup | SUCCESS => {
    "ansible_facts": {
        "ansible_all_ipv4_addresses": [

Note there is no module named system: system is a group of Ansible modules.
