Hey guys,

EST started yesterday in the US, when I saw the time on my Fedora it did not change, I checked the Date/Time settings and it did change the zone to EST, but not the time, I had to change it manually.

Any idea how can I make it to change autmatically?

There should be a check box for enabling the Network Time Protocol. You might need to install chrony for that.

In Gnome, have you tried to turn automatic sync on and off again? Just FYI, in the past, I've experienced problems with ntp sync behind a corporate firewall that blocked ntp requests.

To enable or disable NTP, type the following at a shell prompt as root:

#timedatectl set-ntp boolean

To configure your system to synchronize the system clock with a remote NTP server, replace boolean with yes (the default option). To disable this feature, replace boolean with no. Visit Fedora Documentation for more details Fedora Documentation, Time Configuring
