Not possible to add new timezones to panel clock in UM 19.10

Bug Description

Clicking the panel clock shows a dropdown menu containing a calendar, the time in London, and a "time and date settings" option. I would like to add a second timezone to that menu, or just to switch my computer to a different timezone, so that the clock shows the correct time for where I am at the moment, away from my home timezone.

Opening "time and date settings" shows a window with a "Time zone" dropdown which is disabled. If I click "unlock", this dropdown becomes enabled. Setting it doesn't change the time in the panel clock, nor does it add this new timezone to the clock dropdown menu; the time and date settings window reads Europe/Copenhagen and 9.13 as the time, but the panel clock still shows 08:13.

In addition, changing configuration from "manual" to "keep synchronised with internet servers" pops a warning about not having NTP support installed, and then fails with "DBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.PackageKit was not provided by any .service files".
