Did you try what I suggested in the other post - Check your system date, day/month/year and adjust as required.

Since you have the latest update that is the most common cause incorrect system date.

Because it's already up to date...!
Try a manual update, it could solve it.

I never had that problem, and the same thing for most of the users. normally a bug of this type(if it was a bug) will act in most of the systems.

My misunderstanding.  However a simple reboot or restart will resolve this problem in the meantime.
