Good morning, it does not give a error message. The date just shows the
time, I went into gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface
clock-show-weekday true and changed false to true as instructed to do,
but nothing changed, still just showing the time (6.57 AM). i upgraded
from 18.04 to this version 20.4.5 and this is when it stopped showing
the day week, date and time together. Thanks for your help in this
matter. Sincerely, Charles.

I'm guessing for MATE it's a different source package to gnome-shell.
