[SOLVED] Moved across time zones, clock messed up

I just recently moved across the US, from the Mountain Time Zone to the Central Time Zone. I changed the time zone in settings to Central Time, then changed the time to the correct time, but on every reboot the time keeps moving one hour behind. I am using the Mate desktop. Any ideas what I'm missing?

Re: [SOLVED] Moved across time zones, clock messed up

what devuan version?

try changing timezone from terminal as root and see if that helps :
# dpkg --reconfigure tzdata

there are a few other reasons this can occur, hwclock , mate-settings/dbus issue ( .xsession-errors ? ) others..
this is a nice link : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/System_time

You mention changing timezones, but not which state.
States can vary within a timezone, in particular over daylight saving, which could put you out by an hour.
Have you got the right state?

Tried that and got this:

dpkg: error: unknown option --reconfigure

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
Use 'apt' or 'aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through 'less' or 'more' !

Using 2.1 ascii
