10/22 bolt won't reset trigger

I had been shooting my 10/22 with no problems and did some cleaning and when I put it back together, the bolt won't budge when the trigger assembly is in. If I take the trigger out of the receiver the bolt slides back and forth just fine and the trigger moves back and cocks just fine, too, but the moment I slip the trigger back into the receiver, the bolt won't move backwards. I'm perplexed. I'm new to the gun and am wondering whether there's some step I'm missing, like having the safety in the wrong position, or not keeping an eye on some part that might obstruct the bolt. I've pulled the trigger out before and the bolt, too, so I'm pretty confident I'm doing that all correctly (confirmed by watching YouTube vids also) so I just can't figure out why the bolt works fine without the trigger and then stops moving the moment the trigger is reinserted into the receiver.

Oops, clarification. I said the "trigger moves back and cocks just fine" when the trigger assembly is removed and I meant the hammer moves back and forth just fine. If the hammer was sticky I can understand why the bolt wouldn't push it back, but it's not. The hammer moves back into the cocked position when I push it quite easily. Hope that better explains the problem.

Is the ejector on the far left side of the trigger group when you install it?

Yes, the ejector is on the left and pushed down out of the way.

I figured it out...my dumb mistake. I had screwed the scope base screws directly into the receiver so I wouldn't lost them, but one was protruding into the receiver the tiniest amount. So little that when the trigger assembly was out, the bolt could slide by it since it could drop slightly, but when the trigger assembly was installed it pushed the bolt up a tiny amount so that it then hit that slightly protruding screw and stopped. Problem solved.
