Cannot recover macOS High Sierra?

I ran into this issue when tried to recover old macbook air with lost admin password. Choosing recovery did not help as it always ended with error message “recovery server could not be contacted”.

As I discovered it happened because macbook time was not in sync with apple servers, so the following command in terminal helped to resolve the issue:

ntpdate -u time.apple.com
