Trading Bug
I've noticed this problem with my storm base colony recently where I'll have an order from a trader set and it's just waiting for resources, and it'll get down to 1 thing left, but it doesn't get delivered and the trader eventually leaves. Idk what's causing it, if I had to take a stab at it, I'd guess that a bot was carrying the last thing, died en-route, and the game bugs out and forgets to send someone to complete the order, either way it's fairly annoying especially if I'm trading for an important resource and this bug happens.

There seems to have bbeen some sort of gamefile (not savefile) corruption recently. Please try reinstalling the game (you shouldn't lose your saved games) and see whether that fixes it.

The usual reason for this is that there is a resource stuck somewhere (maybe you built around it or something like that).

Usually if you keep on playing for a while, the resource will decay and trades will work again.

You can also try to find the resource and delete it.

Sorry about this, it is a know bug, but it has no easy solution and it happens quite rarely.

The thing is in my game that final resource would be halfway to the trading ship with a clear path, and get stuck, basically nobody bothers to pick it up, and what worries me is that it was happening fairly frequently, still it might just be something with my install so I'll take PeskyTheTroll's advice and reinstall soon.
There will be another resource somewhere. So if the final resource you've identified is food, somewhere on your map will be another crate of food. This will be really impossible to reach (enclosed in a place with no airlock) or practically impossible to reach (so far from colonists that one sent to pick it up starves before they can get it to the landing pod). The game has a feature which notices resources nobody goes near for a long time and disappears them.

So if reinstalling the game doesn't fix the problem, don't delete your saved game, just let it run for half and hour (I have no idea how long it takes, just a guess) and the problem should go away.
