Can not change time/date format with UM 20.04

I see no options in Time and Date settings to change their format.

When I use dconf-editor and change the custom time format, nothing changes.

Why did Ubuntu Mate make it so hard to accomplish?

How can I remedy that?


I had the same problem. On dconf-editor go: com -cononical- indicator-date time-them scroll down to "time format" and click on the words to open and change it to custom ( near the bottom, turn the use default value off, under custom value change the value to custom.
