System won't turn on

I attempted to turn on my sprinkler system this spring and for somenreason, i was unsuccessful. The system has been running successfully for over 25 years.

When I opened the valve I didn't hear the customary surge of water filling the pipe.

If i press a rod into the brass quick connect, water sprays out. If I attempt to turn on a valve in the first manifold, there is a dripping of water, but there is no real volume or pressure.

I check the water meter and the usage volume does not increase.

Does this mean there is a block somewhere between the valve and the first manifold?
