We've installed a fresh image of Ubuntu Mate and when booting it we get the wrong date and time. We are connecting the internet over wireless and can ping the various timeservers. We also have an internal timeserver and can ping that.
When removing and reinstalling ntp it worked fine - we checked it with ntpq -pn
However after a reboot it had failed again. Restarting the service and checking systemctl status ntp.service gives:
ntp.service - LSB: Start NTP daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/ntp; bad; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu 2016-02-11 16:43:42 GMT; 5s ago

Has anyone else seen this issue and have any resolutions please?
