Shell (Bash – Bin/bash – /bin/sh), history, up arrow, and tab not working

login shell is /bin/sh for username. On Ubuntu, this is a shell intended for scripting, it doesn’t have any comfortable command line edition feature such as history. To get a proper command line shell, change your login shell to bash

sudo chsh -s /bin/bash <username>
