Raspberry Pi – Setting up Date and Time Manually

Why?

  • Cannot update the Raspberry Pi Operating system using sudo apt-get update ? or experiencing an error as given below?

 Release file for http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/dists/buster/InRelease is not valid yet (invalid for another 20d 21h 6min 9s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.

  • Are you fed up of time / date syncing of NTP and have no internet access?
  • Here is how we can update the time manually in our favourite Raspberry Pi.

Solution:

  • Access the Raspberry Pi via SSH or open terminal in your Raspberry Pi Desktop
  • Type in sudo date -s ‘2020-06-16 13:30:10’ command
    • Where; Date is as following
      • Year: 2020
      • Month: 06 (June)
      • Date: 16
    • Time is in 24 hours format e.g.
      • Hour: 13
      • Minutes: 30
