Central locking works by way of little electric motors that engages and disengages the door lock. The drivers door has an additional set of contacts in the actuator which signal the controller when it changes position. The controller activates the servo motors when a signal is received from the receiver or from the drivers door servo motor. So in your case I suspect the motor part of the drivers door actuator is done for.
To replace you will have to remove the inner driver's door panel to get at the actuator. The actuator itself cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as a unit.

I would suspect the fuel flap actuator has failed. Open the trunk. In the right rear corner is the access cover. Open it and you'll see some insulation matting near the top. Behind it is a fuse/relay carrier, I believe either fuse 55 or 56 is blown. If so the fuel flap actuator needs replaced. The fuse also controls the central locking system.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the door lock actuator. It's the motor that locks and unlocks the door mechanism. Once replaced you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Check your master switch on the door panel. If all doors are doing it, the master lock swith is suspect. Don't know if your car has a body control module, or if it has anything to do with the locks. good luck.
