In any case you should configure your system to use ntpd to sync time with

That sounds like a great idea but since I'm new to Linux can you
enlighten me as to how, please?
In Gnome ( the default Ubuntu desktop), right click the clock top right

You'll be prompted for your password.
Select maybe 3 Time Servers near you - don't go mad and select all the

Having more than one is OK - if any of them go

That's about it - just close the dialogue and you should get regular time
adjustments from now on...

needs I receive the following;
