There is some appearance applied to that object. It's not overprinting and not transparency. But when you get rid of all appearances (use the button to delete them in the appearance panel), then the pathfinder works as expected.

 

The layers panel tells you that there is something with that grey target symbol, which is that circle (I hope the Japanese interface doesn't distract you too much):

Alёxander,

 

It could be a temporary/mild corruption.

 

If it happens in more then one document, you can try to close down/reopen AI, or close down/restart the computer, or you can reset your preferences,

It happens from time to time, in different documents. It suddenly happens in the middle of the process with few random shapes while triming of all other shapes work perfect. Close down/reopen AI, restart PC and reset preferences don't help. Same thing in AI CC, AI 2020, AI of sranger if i send file to him.

The Layers panel will show you if something is applied. The target symbol (the circle) will then be filled.

What exactly it is, will then be shown in the Appearance panel. Click on the circle and open the panel to see it.

 

But in this case it is weird, because the Appearance panel doesn't show anything.

As i investigate further, i found out that it is happened because im using Actions for opacity changing to 35% and back to 100% and that "opacity 100%" is that weird Appearance.

Your other problem could be caused by the Precision setting in the Pathfinder panel options, try if a very low setting helps.
