SteveN covered it pretty well. Endgrain absorbs the glue so it just don’t stick… One thing that will help if you must do endgrain glue ups, is to miter the joint so it’s not perpendicular to the long grain direction. If you miter it at 45 degrees, then you have 1/2 end grain and 1/2 side grain or face grain which will give you a better joint. You can also add dowels or biscuits to endgrain joints to improve the glue surface area.
