update: my clock is now 2 minutes and 6.1 seconds ahead. im not sure why its going more ahead now

Couldn’t you change the settings from system time to automatic?

im pretty sure i have that

Run the following:

sudo systemctl enable --now systemd-timesyncd


sudo timedatectl set-ntp true

Then, provide outputs of:

timedatectl status

timedatectl timesync-status


Try in clock plasmoid ->right click -> ajust date and time -> set time automatically

~ >>> timedatectl status
