How to fix Jupyter Hub Exception: Jupyter command `jupyter-hub` not found.

    command = _jupyter_abspath(subcommand)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/jupyter_core/", line 124, in _jupyter_abspath
    raise Exception(
Exception: Jupyter command `jupyter-hub` not found.


Remove the space between jupyter and hub. Instead of

jupyter hub
