    install man weird problem

    Hi guys!
    I have installed (at least I believe this) manpages. After that I typed:
    root@myserver:~# man ls
    that resulted in:
    -bash: man: command not found

    After that I tried to install it again:

    root@myserver:~# apt-get install manpages
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    manpages is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    After that I type again:
    root@myserver:~# man ls
    but it still the same:
    -bash: man: command not found

    What am I missing?
