Ok, I have this raspberry pi zero that's been running for most of a year now and I noticed a few weeks ago that the time was off by several hours. I did some digging and it just plain thinks that UTC time is 4 hours before what it should be.
I poke around the internets, and tried the items here to no avail. I found this post and my
ntp.conf file is exactly the same (I ran diff on them to verify). I haven't tried setting the time explicitly with
ntp -s... because I was under the impression that's what ntp is for?
I've set the timezone using the
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata command (and
sudo raspi-config but those seem to get to the same menu with the same options). This results in the timezone being ok, but UTC is still off.

ntpq seems to be ok.

Any ideas on where else to look?
