Hello and welcome to Justanswer!
It sounds as if you have a failed lock actuator, which is integral to the door latch. The power lock not working could be a wiring or actuator issue but if you're also having trouble locking it by hand that indicates an actuator issue.
If it doesn't want to move by hand then the latch will need to be replaced. You can check for power and ground at the actuator while pressing the lock switch to make sure there isn't also an electrical issue, but not being able to lock manually indicates mechanical failure of the actuator.
