    try these commands and give us their output:

    which john
    find / -name john

    If the above suggestions do not work, check your PATH variable "echo $PATH". John is located at /usr/sbin/john, so make sure /usr/sbin is in the path variable.

    Almost all the tools in Kali will require you to run them as Root.
