Sounds like the lock actuator could be stuck. I would check all your fuses and then I would see if you can remove the lock assembly or manual override it from the inside. See, if you can remove the back seats or put them down and crawl in the trunk itself and see what is going on.

Slide the metal key out of the remote. Stick key in trunk lock. Turn left and push in. That worked on 2002 clk 320

Change the remote battery, then on the passenger side door use the key to unlock the door making sure you hold it in the unlock position until you hear all the locks unlock. That was a quick reset on older model Mercedes 1988-1995 it may still workin on the newer models. My mom has the same issue with her newer 2002. She claims that when she holds down the unlock button and then the trunk it opens for her. It's worth a try.

Same thing happened to my car, I have a C class 2016 model, there's a button in the glove box, if it is flipped to lock then nothing will open the trunk, it's supposed to keep the trunk locked when you unlock the doors, however if you flip the switch to the right, the lock will function normally.

I put jumper cables on my car and the key fab button opened the trunk. try that.

If you can get into the trunk through the back sets, the easiest way to open the trunk is to undo the two small bolts that hold the catch in place. They are easily accessible by prying open the 1" x 2" plastic flap on the inside of the trunk right near the floor, just under the catch assembly. Once you have the trunk open it will be much easier to troubleshoot the actual cause of the problem.
