Can I reset the incorrect time in 12.2 on the fly. My bios time is correct but obviously there is no connection with the OS.
Thanks

date(1) or probably better if you're online ntpdate(8). But if the time's correct in the BIOS but not on the OS it's probably your timezone settings, you can change that by running tzsetup(8).

Set hardware (BIOS/UEFI) time to UTC.

It says secure connection failed.

It's not my time zone that's the problem. It's correct. It's the actual time I want to change
