Smart Lock Touch deadbolt "stuck"

I have spent the afternoon installing a Smart Lock Touch. Everything is put together and the deadbolt is lined up with/ and slides into the strike plate just right, also retracting just right.

But there is a slight resistance getting the deadbolt to extend. Almost seems like it’s rubbing somewhere at the very beginning of extension – on the door-jamb plate of the deadbolt itself? Using the manual knob on the interior assembly, this is easily overcome with a slight hand pressure. But during setup in the Eufy app, the app reports the deadbolt is stuck at that starting point where slight pressure is needed, and will not proceed further to allow setup.

How do I get the deadbolt to extend better??? I Really don’t want to remove/reinstall, as this unit works well otherwise …
