Thank you turkerali.

Not looking to modify the Rock64 for an RTC / battery as the RTC / Battery.

The RTC was promised with inception of the first Rock64 (next build and release over a year ago).

I have done similiar here to micro routers using OpenWRT, RPi's and my Intel touchscreen tablets (very difficult to do).

Used an el cheapo micro router which is doing python, mosquitto, firewall stuff, RTC/battery mods, GPIO adds, et al.

My time base here if via a GPS / PPS connected to PFSense many years ago.  Actually relating to my personal automation went to an NTP server in the 1990's while concurrently using the internet.  

Here very time sensitive.

Just noticed that I did not get any response relating to my last RTC update of hardware request? 

It was promised over a year ago.

Im seriously disappointed that the Rock64 does not have a  RTC ...

when no accurate time is set, the web browsers do not allow access .. and setting time via internet is hard to force ...

What do you mean hard to force?

Did you try using ntpd?

I get a bash error stating that ntpd : command not found

I'm just used to using ntpd and fake-hwclock on headless systems. v3 of the rock64 has RTC

If other options aren't working for you, you can do the following:

sudo apt install ntp fake-hwclock

I have used sudo apt install ntp fake-hwclock  in the past, couldn't remember what it was from the past either ....

Though a RTC would be great ..

Or PPS from a Sat .. but that seems like a pain anymore ...

This is what i meant for the other error .. but i think it is because of

trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/libEGL.so', which is also in package libmali-rk-utgard-450-r7p0:arm64 1.6-1ayufan10

You should be able to use dpkg with --force to make the installer overwrite the file

Code:
dpkg --force-help

You could try the following, but I haven't tested, which is why I posted the help screen:

sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libglvnd-dev_1.0.0-2ubuntu2.2_arm64.deb
