How do I set the manual time for the year 2020 and later on my camera?

Several cameras are unable to set up the year beyond 2020. If you use the NTP server option, this will solve the issue. If you prefer to use manual setup or unable to use NTP server, you can use the time sync tool that could set up the time and date by going through the NIPCA protocol. You will just need to fill-in the camera's IP and login credentials, and then apply the sync the time. The software will sync the correct time and date from the PC to camera.
