Two things that might prevent a fill operation come to mind.

One is if you have an active selection, it will only fill inside the selection. It could be so tiny you don't see it. Be sure you have nothing selected (control-D).

The other thing is if you have "preserve transparency" checked in the fill dialog. Be sure that is NOT checked.
