1. Check for the permission of /tmp
As root
# chmod 1777 /tmp

Login as user

$ man date

Re: can not access the manual

#echo $MANPATH , first check if you have any defined

#catman -w

#man catman ( from a box where man is working)

What does the following show?
whence -vp more

man seems to be using the wrong "more".

That's the right path but could it have been replaced?
Try as root:
swverify -x autoselect_dependencies=false OS-Core.CMDS2-MIN
