Savvas,
I tried your 64bit package and it does put numbers in the /etc/default/adjtimex file
and I didn't see any of the awk errors

on a side note I've found i have to disable cpu frequency scaling first to get a proper
sampling of my clock skew
without that what it gets can vary alot on each run

Status in “adjtimex” package in Ubuntu: New
Status in “adjtimex” package in Debian: New

Bug description:
Binary package hint: adjtimex
Package version: 1.28-1

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release:	10.04
Codename:	lucid


Bug report exists for debian too: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=557949

I have the same problem on Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid, still under testing).
This error makes this package unusable.

It looks like that "Correctly apply +-500 ppm sanity check" applied for version 1.28 is causing problems.
Also, bug #559882 ( http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=559882 ) seems to be a duplicate of this one.

I have the same problem:
