Looks like something to do with the timezone, it probably expects you to use UTC time. Try this suggestion from the comments of the post you linked

- install ntpdate - sudo apt-get install ntpdate
- change you time default to UTC - sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Hi.
I had the same problem. After many tests, I realized that the error was the path in the file schedule_satellite.sh.
Review the path in PREDICTION_START and PREDICTION_END.
Greetings.
