{last_segment_category_id} is not a variable provided directly by ExpressionEngine. So to get this value you need to install an add-on - it is not clear from your question what add-ons you are using (or what version of EE...).

To get a value from the variable {last_segment_category_id} you will need to have installed either URL Helper addon (from here) or Low Seg2Cat (from here), both of which define this variable.

It is probably worth checking which of these you are using (or install one). I am not sure what happens to the variable if you install both add-ons...

You also could achieve something like this result using cat2 (here) but with different tag syntax.

    Ok, sice both Seg2cat and URL Helper are used to find category id from url category segments, they didn't work for getting Entry Url tille segment, so i found a solution using Title Cat Add-on although its for EE2 i had to twix to work on EE5
