Time and date refuses to sync in HiFiBerryOS

Edit changed title from How is time and date set in HiFiBerryOS to Time and date refuses to sync in HiFiBerryOS

Hi all,

I had an issue with Spotify Connect (which is now solved) and noticed there that after a fresh installation my date and time was completely off. Running the timedatectl command gave:

timedatectl
Local time: Sat 2020-09-12 12:55:53 UTC
Universal time: Sat 2020-09-12 12:55:53 UTC
RTC time: n/a
Time zone: Etc/UTC (UTC, +0000)
System clock synchronized: no
NTP service: active
RTC in local TZ: no

It thought it was Sep 12 2020 but it was Dec 30 2020. The hour was off as well, even after changing the time zone with

timedatectl set-timezone 'Europe/Brussels'

So I was wondering, how does the HiFiBerry set its time and date during the installation? Or how should it do it?
