As it seems from your commands history, you can replace hadoop by 


and it should help.

If you want to use hadoop command without specifying the full path to it, you can edit ~/.bashrc file and add the following line:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/hadoop/bin/

Then you need to reopen your terminal.
