I think your setup works like this:

power from breaker panel goes to the gfci unit.
From Gfci, to 1st regular outlet,
from 1st regular outlet to next regular outlet.

If there is a problem with either regular outlet,
it can keep the gfci "off" to protect you.

If there is a problem with the gfci itself, also no power to the
regular outlets.

You need to check for voltage at the gfci and explore things
from there.
