I am having the same problem.  Interestingly, /etc/localtime is correctly symlinked to the appropriate file in /usr/share/zoneinfo, but the GUI for time and date says no timezone is configured, and trying to set it results in the above error.
... because systemd sucks

Use "timeset-gui" in the AUR it is designed to work on openrc.

openrc-settingsd can be installed, it provides dbus interfaces to systemd's localectrl, timedatectl, and hostnamectl.
So clock and timezone settings work in DEs.

Service is optional, it has dbus activation.
The package provide dbus interfaces as previously already stated.
Arch DEs expect these dbus interfaces, ie systemd, or else the DEs gui throws an error.
