Heyaaas.

So, kinda fresh install here, using timectl and I'm having a kind of intermitent problem that affects some sites with SSL. Yesterday it hit rock bottom when it affected StackOverflow so I really need to fix it. It seems that some sites, some days, are detecting my clock being behind and so they wont let me in. It's funny but then the next day they will allow me no problems. The only site that just wont let me login is NCSoft's site to which I sent an email cuz I couldnt login and they said:

Hello,

Your attempts to log into the website are triggering some of our security measures designed to prevent malicious activity and attacks on our systems.

I would suggest checking your system setting and ensure that the timezone of your PC is in sync with the timezone of where you are currently located.

If that issue is resolved, you should have no issues logging into the website.

My clock seems to be perfect with my country and everything so I really dont know what to do, it even has the exact same time as my phone. I haven't synced the HW clock since I dual boot with windows. Altho I haven't booted on windows for weeks now, I don't want to run into problems when I do.

Code:
Aranza /home/skirmitch # timedatectl
               Local time: Tue 2020-06-09 11:41:37 UTC
           Universal time: Tue 2020-06-09 11:41:37 UTC
                 RTC time: Tue 2020-06-09 11:41:37
                Time zone: n/a (UTC, +0000)
System clock synchronized: no
              NTP service: inactive
          RTC in local TZ: no

What exactly was the error message that prompted you to work on this?
