I have installed Arch Linux on my Raspberry Pi from rasparch-exton-1680mb-180402.zip, successfully updated and have set my Locale to en_AU.UTF-8 and this looks OK.

timedatectl continues to show Time zone: UTC

timedatectl set-timezone AEDT returns Invalid time zone

  • ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Sydney /etc/localtime

After some more reading of man timedatectl I found the list-timezones command.

I set timedatectl set-timezone Australia/Sydney
