Question about 2006 Nissan 1400 Bakkie
Some brake systems have a pressure control valve usually soon after the master cylinder that cuts off the circuit with low or no pressure in the event of a leak or rupture of the line.
Trace the metal brake lines from the master cylinder down the chassis and you may find a small cylindrical valve that has 2 inlets from the M/C and 2 outlets leading front and rear. The method of centring the piston in this valve varies from one supplier to another but basically the good rear system has pushed the piston one way and cut off the front circuit. If you lightly release the pressure in the rear system, then try and bleed the front system it may push the piston back to centre. If it does, close the rear system and then front and see if you have any front circuit pressure.
This is only a guess at your problem but remember, brakes are your life, don't be embarrassed to get help or get a manual.

When bleeding the fronts and the pedal does not go down all the way, stand on the pedal HARD and see if it won't go down then...
The proper sequence is to bleed fronts FIRST... if you had done this, you probably could have avoided this problem... but no worry, it is just a nuisance!
If you still have a problem after trying this, you might have a master cylinder problem... the seals to the fronts might be leaking, not able to build pressure...
So try this and let me know how it goes, and DON't FORGET: Your rating is my ONLY compensation for helping you!

You need a scan tool to hold open the control valves in the ABS, air is trapped in it and you can't bleed the brakes until you have the ABS held open

It does not sound like air in the system or the pedal would pump up. I would tend to lean towards the brakes may need an adjustment and also the an adjustment to the rod at the master cylinder. You were very observant in noticing a change as that. You are correct in that the pedal should not travel so far as to be near the floor, this can cause an unsafe condition. Have this problem attended to soon to be safe.
