> man ls
No manual entry for ls

> man tar
No manual entry for tar

Every command cannot be found, except Git. I installed git a while ago and had trouble getting the git man to show up. I forget what I did and, now git can be found and every else cannot be found. I have tried yum update, install for man and man-pages. I think the problem is just assigning the correct path for man to find the pages. No sure how to do that. I'm using CentOS 7.

Some info...

> man -w

> man -w git

    What is the output of command man? Do you still have /usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz? If so, what happens if you run man -l /usr/share/man/man1/ls.1.gz? – sourcejedi Jul 12 '19 at 20:17
