You may just have a section of slightly crimped or squished awning rail, for which you can get a simple tool that allows repair of this. See this as an example.

Sometimes, a light squirt of teflon spray will help ease a stubborn awning into the rail too, but check the tool idea first.

Always spray awning rail with silicone spray or MR Sheen furniture polish before pulling awning through if rail undamaged goes a dream.

Like paul says you may have a bit on the rail which needs opening up a bit.
