Looks like the Skype for Business powershell is not loaded, you need the On-premises powershell module to be loaded to be able to run Get-CsUser.

my account on skype onprem is different than skype online and MFA is enabled for my skyponline user.

You run it from on-premises, you can also use the Skype Control Panel.
