That is *not* the GNU Coreutils du command.  That is more likely the
AIX du command.

Check your path to the command.  One of the following should work.
The exact one depends upon your shell and system environment.

  type du
  which du
  whence du

Your PATH is probably not configured as you expected it to be.

  echo $PATH

Or depending upon your shell you may need to rehash the cached path
command location history.
