What's wrong here:

# man uptime
This is the same information contained in the header line displayed by

# w
 20:53:54 up 29 days, 12:19,  2 users,  load average: 1.02, 0.68, 0.29

# uptime
uptime: couldn't get boot time: No such file or directory

Apparently uptime is trying to get its information from another place
than w, but /where/? The manpage is rather, well, short. What am I
