if you take off interior panel.....push out the dent with a bar....then try button if no work go back inside and you should see bars going down from handle to latch area...pull up on it and should pop the trunk

Thats what you will need to do is to remove the interior gate panel so you can release the latch. It will come off although a bit difficult with the gate closed, with a little care you can do it without breaking anything. It sounds like possibly a linkage retainer clip broke.
Try pushing in on the gate while turning the release handle in case the latch is in a bind if that dont work remove the panel

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Chevrolet
the plastic trim around the handle pops out easily there will be two rods going outward towards the latch [the clips are known for breaking] these rods pull inward together to release the latches

Maybe a little late here but i have a fix for this after turning down my dealers generous offer of a 750gbp fix i did some extensive googling and found this.... With your ignition on open the tailgate using the catch inside then turn off ignition and disconnect the battery for a minute. Reconect the battery and turn on ignition and let the warning lights go through their cycle. With the ignition still on shut the tailgate and hey Presto should be as good as new.
