What does `which bro` output? And what does `ls -l $(which bro)` output?
If the bro binary doesn’t have read permissions I think you may get an error like that. You might also check that the read/search permissions for path components are sane (a blunt way to ensure that would be something like `chmod -R +rX /home/myAccount/bro2.3`).
