I’d been noticing for some time that my computer clock wasn’t showing the correct time. I realized about it by comparing it with server clocks I administer, so I thought my PC wasn’t using an NTP server for syncing time & date.

Today I remembered and it resulted easier than I thought. Firstly I issued this command in a terminal to check it:

> timedatectl
Local time: lun 2019-08-19 18:11:19 -03
Universal time: lun 2019-08-19 21:11:19 UTC
RTC time: lun 2019-08-19 21:11:19
Time zone: America/Montevideo (-03, -0300)
System clock synchronized: no
NTP service: no
RTC in local TZ: no

Here you can clearly see that NTP service is disabled, so I had to enable it by running the following command:

> sudo timedatectl set-ntp true

After that checking again with timedatectl we get:

Local time: lun 2019-08-19 20:43:43 -03
Universal time: lun 2019-08-19 23:43:43 UTC
RTC time: lun 2019-08-19 23:43:43
Time zone: America/Montevideo (-03, -0300)
System clock synchronized: yes
NTP service: active
RTC in local TZ: no

Done! Time and date synced.
