Today my left mouse button stopped working. Touchpad still works but USB cable mouse does not.

I tired :

syslog show this error, if I plug in the mouse:

systemd-udevd[297662]: 1-3: Process '/usr/lib/snapd/snap-device-helper bind snap_cups_cupsd /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-3 189:13' failed with exit code 1. systemd-udevd[297662]: 1-3: Process

Most likely the mouse is broken and you'll have to replace it. Test it with a different computer to make sure.

Fixing just the button may be possible, but you'd need parts, tools and soldering skills.

The error is related to CUPS which manages printers, not mice.
