I had the system on for a while and it finally said it had updates (197 of them! YIKES!). After the updates, the time was still wrong, but I changed it and this time it stuck.
There are a few updates which my system will not complete however. The system is connected to the internet, i have left it alone, still on, while the update is initiated, and still some of the updates will not go through, even with root authentication. Any ideas?
