Are you logged in as root when trying to run the adduser command? Only root can add users. Mostly the commands in /sbin and /usr/sbin need to be run as root. That's why those directories are in root's $PATH and not in ordinary user's $PATHs. $PATH lists the directories that the shell should search for the commands you run.
To see what $PATH is, run this command: echo $PATH
