(Gen 2:17 KJV) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

So what happened "in the day that thou eatest"?

"For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous."

Romans 5:17-19 NASB

Spiritual death and the denial of access to the tree of life which caused eventual death.

Both. The actual sin is spiritual death, separation of a relationship with God.
However, that sin resulted in condemnation to death, physical death. Satan took man captive through death and sin. Man sins because he is mortal as I Cor 15:56 states. We don't sin in the same manner as did Adam. Our flesh has become weak, and because it is susceptible to death it gives birth to all the vices that work against his fellow man. Decay, corruption and death became the end of God's creation. Man would simply be dissolved by death, dust to dust. Gen 3:19.

Christ is the solution by assuming the same nature that Satan captured, our human nature, and defeated death by his own death and resurrection, giving life to the world, Rom 5:18.

I explained this to you before, did you not understand it?

This happened then,like God warned.
Genesis 3:16-19 KJV

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
