foot valve stuck closed?

What would be the symptoms of a system if the foot valve was stuck closed. 1/3 Hp covertable jet pump with foot valve and injector in the well.

Would the pump built pressure with the prime water but be unable to produce flow? No flow and pressure?

There's usually not enough "prime" water to build much pressure. You might see the pressure gauge jump, but it will usually drop back off fairly quickly.
You could have a stuck footvalve, a plugged nozzle, or an internal pump problem that could lead to the scenarios that you seem to be describing.
