I have installed Ubuntu 12.04. I am in Europe/Dublin timezone. My clock is one hour fast. I'm getting time off the Internet. Here is the output from dpkg-reconfigure tzdata at 15:41.

Current default time zone: 'Europe/Dublin'
Local time is now:      Thu Oct 11 16:41:54 IST 2012.
Universal Time is now:  Thu Oct 11 15:41:54 UTC 2012.

The time displayed in Ubuntu is the wrong, late one: 16:41.

  • Is daylight saving running in your City? – Anwar Oct 11 '12 at 14:52

I think the problem is "Daylight saving" is active in your area and this information is not available in Ubuntu's time server. Check that it is indeed the case.

This is confirmed by OP in a comment

  • Is there a fix? – ScrollerBlaster Oct 13 '12 at 6:20
  • I don't know about a good fix. I would simply change my timezone to myprevioustimezon+1. – Anwar Oct 13 '12 at 6:25
