You are welcome. :)

So, your original idea of using "hwclock --set --date --localtime" seems to be
the best way.

Alternatively, you might try replaying the question-answer sequence regarding
RTC at install time.

~$ dpkg -S /sbin/hwclock
util-linux: /sbin/hwclock

Perhaps "dpkg-reconfigure util-linux" might cause the same install-time
question be asked again (presumably along with other questions).
