Please follow this link for a proper request: Apart from that add tenant to the request. You can use a request like this:

curl -d '{"auth":{"passwordCredentials":{"username": "admin", "password": "admin"},"tenantName": "admin"}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:5000/v2.0/tokens

You are missing a comma after the value for the username key. The payload should be

 '{"auth":{"passwordCredentials": {"username": "admin", "password": "admin"}}}'

On an unrelated note, I don't think that that you need to execute curl with sudo.
