Looking at this photo here the cap seems to go inside the hub. Possibly the bike shop have supplied you with the wrong one? The part number should be - M40448.
Could the adjuster and dust-cap be fitted on the wrong sides? (I have no experience with the Ellipse hub).
Have you tried threading the dust cap on, instead of pressing it?
If you can take some photos that would help.
Pedal&Post in Oxford are selling one of their Urban Arrows…
They are definitely more for commuting/riding to the shops where you are likely to be on the hoods all the time. You can sort of use the drops but you can't access the brakes easily, same with the tops. Riding on the drops/tops with bar mitts is not something I would recommend for safety reasons.

Why do some companies use MyHermes for delivery but for returns they use Royal Mail?
I’ve got these - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cycling-Gloves-Windproof-MTB-Road-Bike-Handlebar-Mittens-Hand-Warmer-Cover-Mitts-/313485969994?
Made from neoprene/wetsuit material. They work really well and a few people have bought them after seeing mine. Plus random people ask about them.
I’m a courier and got fed up of wearing gloves - never waterproof for long/not working on touchscreens/annoying to take on and off. I never have to wear gloves with these handlebar mitts. Combined with some gloves your hand will be toasty.
There is literally a hole worn through the carbon from tyre rub.
