/user/hue directory is on HDFS not on local file system, that's the reason you are not able to directly 'cd' to it.

Please try below command(as hue or hdfs user)

hadoop fs -ls /user/hue

  1. "hadoop fs -ls /user/hue" it is working and able to see the list of directories but how to enter into this directory by using 'cd'?


You cannot cd into HDFS folders, Try creating a NFS Gateway for your HDFS and you can cd into those directory! After creating a NFS Gateway, run this command : mount -t nfs -o vers=3,proto=tcp,nolock <ip addr>:/ /data/hadoop/hdfs/
