Hi,
Turkish Authorities decided to change timezone again this year. And this situation is new. Turkey decided disuse to DST and use GMT+3 anymore.

IANA http://www.iana.org/time-zones has not yet published the new version containing that change (2016g), but I am quite sure that whenever they do, Ubuntu will quickly update their packages.

Just linked a given bug-report – so the update is on it's way ;-)

It's preferred if the Questioner marks thsi as solved, when it's solved. Thanks!
