Well, the core of the readon is a clock and date, but the reason can be:

  • You are really having wrong time on your PC. If it's windows - set it and the timezone in Control Panel, if it's unix-like - set the timezone first and the date+time next.
  • You're experiencing an NTP fake attack, here in Russia some ISP's do this stuff to disrupt Tor and torrent users. Here is the trick: they do announce an NTP server of them as stratum 0 and, due to the very fast connection to it via ISP's network - they can skew the clocks just sending a bad data over the network. It hit my router once, and I was pretty surprised with ntpq and tcpdump output... The "cure" is to have an NTP server of yours with strict IP filtering for input and use your NTP server to sync all your time. It's rare, but 5 cases in 3 cities were in my recent practice.

man timedatectl if on systemd-linux

apt/yum install ntp/ntpd if not

If windows... click on the clock or something, choose sync time something
