Librem 14 first boot fails

on the first boot, Pureboot says

HOTP verification success
Attempting default boot
signature made november 19 2020 using key…
key … was created 18585 days in the future (time warp or clock problem)
Can’t check signature: bad public key
invalid signature on kexec boot parms
Failed default boot
i am in the recovery shell

has this been seen before or am I just lucky?

This happens to me a lot on mine. It seems like laptop loses track of time sometimes after an abrupt shutdown (a different problem). You have to force a unsafe boot to get into the OS. Did you ever figure out a solution?

The issue I experienced was because the battery was not charged and the date reset to 11/20 every time I booted. This made the keys suspect and I ended up doing an OEM Reset and HOTP refresh.
