There is 2 switches relating to the boot, one is on the latch the other is on the boot lid on rh side covered by a rubber cover a common problem is that the plastic boot closing panel comes loose so the switch does not oprate when boot closed try latching the boot latch manually ie.with a screwdriver.and holding the other switch compressed and see if the warning goes off, that way you may be able to isolate which switch is the problem,

There is a switch built into your latch that senses if the trunk is open or closed. You might try spraying the latch with WD-40 and working it back and forth, it might come out of it. If not you will probably need to replace the latch assembly as the switch is not serviceable separate.

Have you another key and fob ?

Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss

good luck !

Check all your fuses first as it sounds like you shorted something out, did you turn the jag off before connecting the jump leads, if you did you will be ok but if you did not it is more than likely a fuse.
hope thishelps
