I think you have a problem of your environment variables. If you look at
the INSTALL file, it is written:
1. Set up your environment:

    The AMBERHOME environment variable should point to the directory
    you are now in. For example:

    Using csh, tcsh, etc: setenv AMBERHOME /usr/local/amber7

    Using sh, bash, zsh, etc: set AMBERHOME=/usr/local/amber7
                              export AMBERHOME

    NOTE: Be sure to replace the "/usr/local" part above with whatever
    path is appropriate for your machine.

    You may then wish to add $AMBERHOME/exe to your PATH environment

To run AMBER, you have to set your environment correctly.
Good luck.
