Why time changes itself?

Why does time change by itself? delay of time by 51 minutes. yes,automatic time is on.

Something that would help us a lot to understand the problem would be this:

  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the command:


  1. The above command will create a file with the information of your system (example: eos-diagnostic-160614_111731_UTC + 0100.txt); Send us this file so we can analyze and see a possible solution

eos-diagnostic-210206_153847_UTC 0530.txt (7.0 MB)

Update for Endless OS 3.9.2 by APP Center

Can you please post the output of:

sudo systemctl status fake-hwclock.service

OK, seems good so far. Can you please run the following command and upload the generated file ntp.txt from your home directory here.

journalctl -u ntp.service 2>&1 1>~/ntp.txt

ntp.txt (102 Bytes)

For some odd reason, the NTP service which is responsible for keeping your computers time in sync seems not running. Can you please enable it with:

sudo systemctl enable ntp.service
sudo systemctl start ntp.service

Does this throw any errors? If it does, can you please post the output of:

sudo systemctl status ntp.service

thank you.
time updated to current time with commands you gave.

  2. another problem still persists Admin Setting missing
