to set the time zone I tried following:

auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl
      Local time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:14 UTC
  Universal time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:14 UTC
        RTC time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:13
       Time zone: n/a (UTC, +0000)
 Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: no
 RTC in local TZ: no
auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl set-ntp 0
auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl
      Local time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:34 UTC
  Universal time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:34 UTC
        RTC time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:33
       Time zone: n/a (UTC, +0000)
 Network time on: no
NTP synchronized: no
 RTC in local TZ: no
auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Berlin
auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl
      Local time: Fri 2019-05-17 08:46:56 CEST
  Universal time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:56 UTC
        RTC time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:46:55
       Time zone: Europe/Berlin (CEST, +0200)
 Network time on: no
NTP synchronized: no
 RTC in local TZ: no

Everything looks great but then reboot ...

auser@localhost:~$ sudo reboot
auser@localhost:~$ sudo timedatectl
      Local time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:48:51 UTC
  Universal time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:48:51 UTC
        RTC time: Fri 2019-05-17 06:48:51
       Time zone: n/a (UTC, +0000)
 Network time on: yes
NTP synchronized: no
 RTC in local TZ: no

NTP synchronized switched to yes and Local time and Time zone switched back to UTC. How can I change these so that it survives a reboot?

Do in order to install snappy:

sudo apt install ubuntu-snappy-cli

In order oo read the current configuration for ubuntu-core:

snappy config ubuntu-core

Then in order to update it:

CONFIG=/tmp/core_config

snappy config ubuntu-core > "$CONFIG"
sed -i 's/timezone: .*$/timezone: America\/Cordoba/' "$CONFIG"
sudo snappy config ubuntu-core "$CONFIG"

as mentionned here.
