When you say "not working", what exactly happens when you run that command. It works for me.

CODE
$ man -k e2fs
dumpe2fs             (8)  - dump ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem information
e2fsck               (8)  - check a Linux ext2/ext3/ext4 file system
e2fsck.conf [e2fsck] (5)  - Configuration file for e2fsck
e2fsck [fsck]        (8)  - check a Linux ext2/ext3/ext4 file system
mke2fs               (8)  - create an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem
mke2fs.conf [mke2fs] (5)  - Configuration file for mke2fs
mke2fs [mkfs]        (8)  - create an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem
resize2fs            (8)  - ext2/ext3/ext4 file system resizer
tune2fs              (8)  - adjust tunable filesystem parameters on ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystems
