Are you sure that lastlog is failing to report entries from
/var/log/lastlog or is it a problem with the login program you use that do
not report logins in /var/log/lastlog?

Can you check the date of the /var/log/lastlog file after one of your user
as logged in?

Note that entries in /var/log/lastlog are usually added by pam, with the
pam_lastlog module.
