I apologize if this is the wrong location to report this, I tried
#ubuntu-doc just now, but it was mostly idle.

There's a bug in the documentation at
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime in the 'Command Line
ntpdate' section.
If you follow the directions to add /etc/cron.daily/ntpdate it doesn't
tell you to put a shebang line so the cron job fails with 'run-parts:
failed to exec /etc/cron.daily/ntpdate: Exec format error'.
It looks like others have been bit by this before also:
