Additionally, there is no way in the GUI to set time manually. The RPi would forget it anyway after its next shutdown.

Connect to your Pi via SSH

Open or create file /storage/.config/ and insert

(sleep 20 && /sbin/ntpd -p [yourTimeserver]) &


Reboot and wait some seconds – time should be correct.
