Hi, thanks for replying. I don't think the software can be updated anymore, it's a Samsung Note 5, so several years old. The last update was 8/24/18 to N920VVRS3CRH1.

Thanks! The problem was that somehow the set time/date automatically was turned off. When I turned it on the correct time was displayed. ☺
