I have a Cannon EOS m50 and have set it to all modes but it wont take a photo. on the camera it shows what i want to take the photo (moon) of in focus and everything but when i go take photo nothing happens. when i do remote shutter from my phone it says shutter unavaliable. Please help! Thanks in advance!

You are telling on yourself.  You have not gone through all of the menus or the instruction manual.  There is menu setting that enables the camera to release the shutter without a lens.

Though you might need to download the advanced manual instead of any manual that came with the camera.

"There is menu setting that enables the camera to release the shutter without a lens."

 

This is correct and it should be right under the first one or two menu screens. I don't have a M50 so I don't know for positive but its there somewhere. It is the second menu on my 1 series.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

They might have to be in an "advanced mode" too, like PAS or M.
