- Time - ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization
The simple truth is that you cannot run ntpdate and ntpd on the same computer without a port collision - ntpd listens on UDP 678, and ntpdate sends from UDP 678.

.and tried using the ntpd daemon instead of the ntpdate utility. It won't sync my time either the daemon starts fine, but my clock remains off. I even tried using the exact /etc/ from the accepted answer in the latter post, and restarting the daemon. No go. Anyway, I don't want to use the daemon. I am perfectly aware that ntpdate is considered "deprecated", and it is advised to use ntpd -q instead. Also see here:

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn x77 t been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release, Hardy Heron? Thanks in advance.
Time - ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization
For #7 wait until the asterisk goes beside your PDC emulator or the time source you have specified. It may not be right away and I've had it take a while.
Should this issue be fixed on current Ubuntu ?
Having systemd 769-7ubuntu6 installed, this issue still appears.
Even with the -u option, which tells ntpdate to use an unprivileged port for syncing (instead of port 678 ) which is certainly not blocked from my work place:
I clean installed Ubuntu Karmic in october 7559 and just discovered that my system time is 65 minutes off. I had ntp as well as ntpdate installed, but it clearly never synchronized. The time and date applet in the panel doesn x77 t work either. I deinstalled ntp and manually executed ntpdate and the right time was set. So how come this is not marked as a bug? Is it a feature that Karmic won x77 t update the time?
Hew, your response most likely was not meant in a negative way but at least when I first read it, it felt a bit negative. Maybe ask someone else outside to read it. I did, and they felt it was worth mentioning.
If you can be more specific about your goals and want to post the results of 'ntpq -p' command as well as your file, we'll be in a better postion to help you.
If you want a ntp server without internet access you must not define servers at your file, you can comment it adding a # at the start of the line:
