I have an issue where the date and time is set wrong when I use Automatic Date & Time in Settings to set the time from the internet. I've attached screen shots to show what happens when I enable the feature.
This is different from Clock time is off on dual boot because:
- I don't need to boot into Windows to see the issue, I simply need to enable Internet date/time in Ubuntu.
- the offset is not the time zone difference, it seems seems to be fairly random and the year is decades in the future. The attached screenshot changes my date from Dec 8 2018 1:44pm to Nov 29 2039 7:45am. I suppose time zone could account for the time different itself of 6 hours (even though my offset is ether 4 or 5, depending on time of year), but not the month/day/year differences.
I've booted from a Live USB and enabled the feature and it worked fine.
I realized that I accidentally downloaded LTS (18.04) for the Live test. When I tried it for 18.10 the Settings app freezes when I click on Details. So, I'm not sure how to get to the date/time settings to test it, but it's still probably worth noting that it worked fine in the 18.04 Live environment.
I'm using a Dell XPS 9570 laptop.
How can I fix this? Or, what apps and configs are involved in this feature and how can I see if they are corrupt or just reinstall the package(s) and config file(s) to default?
