It is a pollination problem. When the flowers are not pollinated, the plant "aborts" the fruit because it will not make seeds. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/insect-pollination-process.htm

You will need to hand pollinate, so this article will also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/cucumber/hand-pollinating-cucumbers.htm
