As already described in this thread the system time is synchronized with NTP. It works in two modes: (1) if you have Internet connection NTP gets time from public NTP servers, (2) if you don't have INternet connection NTP gets time from GPSD server (assuming you have a gps connected to your raspberry). If you don't have INternet connection and gps connected to your raspberry the only option is to set the time manually.
Now, where the time setting delay may come from? NTP does not set the time in one jump. Instead it sets the system time in a few jumps, chasing the actual time. I believe this is for consistency of many processes running on a system. To get it quicker you need to install ntpdate and run it once at system boot. It will set the time and leave little distance for NTP to chase the exact time.
Anyway I would advice to use GPS module with RTC (real time clock) or just RTC module so your raspberry keeps the date and time between reboots.

I installed ntpdate. Running it states the socket is in use.

GPS is not possible for me at this time. Need to get a few other things first :)

Kstars still crashes on me on the RPI3 unfortunately. To restart and match date ASAP, I want to get the time reset. Is there a process to stop, perhaps gpsd, so that ntpdate can work quickly?

Thank you

The very first result of this query gives you exact answer: www.google.pl/search?q=ntpdate+socket+is+in+use

General comment to the thread: many of you contact me asking for support in your specific needs and customizations. I treat all of these queries as a feature or change requests. I cannot handle every single case so Astroberry Server fits all your needs. It needs to stay generic to be usable and simple. The more you customize the system the more you need to fix the issues on your own.

Understood, it is Ubuntu.

The way it is working now is all that I need. No change sought.

Thank you Kaczorek.
