I see that the time in my Ubuntu 20.04 (12:40 PM) is different from my wall clock and also the www.timeanddate.com web site (12:20 PM). As you can see int he picture, the time zones are correct. How can I fix that?

    Check that systemd-timesyncd is running... Check with the commands systemctl status systemd-timesyncd (must be Active: active (running)) and journalctl -b -u systemd-timesyncd.service (should show time synchronization status).

Just install ntp

sudo apt-get install ntp

It'll automatically synchronize your clock.
