Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a handful of things going on. The problem could be a mechanical failure of the latch, an electrical failure with the release solenoid or it's control circuit. It's also definitely possible that something foreign was closed in the trunk or the latch itself and is preventing it from opening easily.

Do you hear any noise from the trunk when pressing the electric release?
