must be something stuck in the keyhole, or the key cylinder is broken

There is a flap that covers the keyway inside the cylinder and that flap is held closed by a tiny spring with two little tabs sticking out of each end. My guess is a tab has broken and wedged itself between the cap and cylinder. Get something approximately the same size and shape as the key and keep working it in there. Use some force but be careful not to snap the whateverthehell you are using.
