NTP is really easy to set up.  As a non-ubuntu user, I would guess that
if you went up to 'administration' and then found the 'synamtec package
manager' you'd be in good shape.  Search for 'ntp' and you should find
a client.  My guess is that it would probably run an update immediately
- watch your clock to see. If not, a command like 

ntpdate -u

should set your clock.  It's a good bet the ubuntu people are good
enough to make sure that will happen periodically from now on.
