You should not chroot into a directory /usr/bin/env. 

You created a directory tree under your old system, for example 
at /mnt/lfs/ there is another complete Linux directory tree. Now 
you wish to change into that new tree and hide everything which 
is above from your system, with chroot $LFS. Seems you made a 
typo and forgot the space between "chroot $LFS" and the parameter 
"/usr/bin/env -i..."?

Disclaimer: I am a beginner like you, just worked my way through 
chapter 5 and 6.
