did you bench bleed this master cylinder ?
if not try to bench bleed the master cylinder with a bench bleed kit
if still no fluid will come out of that port and nothing is visually blocking the opening in that port then that master cylinder is defective and bring it back for another master clyinder

if the master cylinder did not come with a bleeder kit with it do you have a suction vacuum bleeder or hand held vacuum pump?
if so with the line off that port that will not send any fluid with the cap off can you suck on that port and get any fluid flow ?

Welcome! My name is ***** ***** you for allowing me to assist you! Sounds like 6ou got a defective master cylinder. Take it back and get another one. Then put the new one in a vice and bench bleed it to make sure that it works before you install it into the vehicle.
