Cannot set time zone

Following are the details of my configuration.
SOM: Apalis iMX8
Board: Ixora

On the terminal, I am unable to set a time zone.
Following login with password, I am getting the following output.

I have tried using timedatectl to set-ntp to false but this is not working as noted in the following link.

Hi @SJ_BHD , if it is Toriozn installed on Apalis iMX8, you will need sudo imedatectl set-timezone Europe/London.

Thanks @benjamin.tx
sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/London is working.
