Go to Apple --> System Preferences --> Accessibility. Choose "Mouse & Trackpad" from the left column, and click on the "Trackpad Options..." button in the right window. Make sure that the box called "Scrolling" is checked. In my case this was not checked and I couldn't use two-finger scrolling in any window or application.

Most likely, your internal keyboard and trackpad has failed. The "Internal Keyboard/Trackpad" is a USB device, so there is no special controller or circuitry involved on your logic board.

Got this this weekend, I was starting to go a little cranky when I saw my 2015 MBP wouldn't click. Tried restarting, to no avail. At one point, I unchecked 'tap to click', big mistake because I couldn't click anymore, so I connected a USB mouse to regain tap-to-click, but still no trackpad clicking. I came across this answer from user jbjose80 on ...
